& Pollination Program continues to support leading research that ensures a productive
and sustainable Australian beekeeping industry, and secures the pollination of
our agricultural sector.

ongoing investment in a robust research, development and extension (RD&E)

works in partnership with the AgriFutures™ Honey Bee & Pollination Program
Advisory Panel to determine research priorities and make investment decisions.
a collaboration that continues to deliver positive benefits for the industry,

Research Annelies McGaw. She believes the resilience of Australia’s beekeepers
is reflected in the dynamic RD&E program, which aims to safeguard the
health of Australia’s bees.
