The Australian native honey bee industry has been identified by AgriFutures Australia as an emerging industry with high growth potential. As a result, AgriFutures Australia would like to invest in our industry by collaborating with us to develop a Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Plan. The plan will assist us to map out our industry RD&E priorities for the next five years, which can be used to target investment from funding bodies and assist the growth of the industry.
AgriFutures Australia have engaged consultants Susentom to work with the Australian native honey bee industry to develop the RD&E Plan. The involvement of the entire industry is pivotal to the success of the RD&E Plan. Without strong engagement and representation, it is difficult to ensure the RD&E Plan meets the needs of everyone within the industry. To ensure you are engaged with the process, please provide your details via this link by midday 25 June. (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PDHPSJS).
