Bees, pollination and wild blueberries are intertwined and focusing on these two sectors has been the focus of Perennia's Atlantic Tech Transfer Team for Apiculture. Today that team got a boost with the announcement of funding from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture. This is an awesome team doing novel applied research and outreach work under a regional partnership. In some cases, the work they are doing is not being done nationally or internationally so their and industry's leadership has been incredible. The photos show Minister Keith Colwell, federal Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau and Sean Fraser, MP for Central Nova at the event, and Perennia's Dr. Robyn McCallum giving the details of her team's research. ow.ly/EbmH50vwsmS ...
