Agricultural organisations join to promote bee safety

The responsible use of products is the driver for the bee responsible campaign launched by Agcarm, NZ Aviation in Agriculture, and Rural Contractors New Zealand.

The campaign is being promoted during September to coincide with Bee Aware Month as well as the peak sale of agrichemicals.

Agcarm chief executive Mark Ross said agrichemicals are vital for ensuring the security of the food supply and, when used responsibly, “pose no threat to our bee population.” But “we must remain vigilant and address any potential risks to our bees.”

He emphasised the importance of manufacturers of agrichemicals having clear label statements regarding safety precautions for their products, including describing how to protect pollinators.
