Bee Vectoring Technology (BVT)

Company Description

Precision bee vectoring is generating real excitement across America. It's helping growers like you manage crop disease and increase marketable yields – naturally. 

Bee vectoring delivers continuous protection directly to flowers: BVT’s VectorHive™ system uses commercial bees to deliver Vectorite™ with CR-7, a biological fungicide for the control of common fungal diseases including Colletotrichum (anthracnose), Botrytis (gray mold), and Monilinia (mummy berry).

How does bee vectoring work? As bees leave their hive to forage, they walk through our VectorHive dispenser, picking up trace amounts of biofungicide (which attach harmlessly to their bodies), then carry it directly into blooms. As the bees pollinate your crops, they efficiently deliver the microbe directly to where plants are most susceptible to many fungal diseases: the flower. Once on the flower, the microbe colonizes the plant and protects the crop against various diseases.

NEW: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY R&D trial data results
Rutgers researchers report strong disease fighting results for bee vectoring, including:

·8-27% decrease in Anthracnose disease with BVT's honeybee system (84% decrease with bumblebee system)

·11% more marketable, healthy berries 10 days after harvest with BVT compared to the grower standard (60% more with BVT compared to untreated control)

BVT Oregon trial data results
When two Pacific Northwest growers tried bee vectoring during the last growing season, they got some incredibly promising results:

  • Significant reduction in Monilinia (mummy berry) disease: from 25% to avg. 2.7%
  • 16% average increase in berry size
  • 43% more larger berries (= 12mm)
  • Higher yields over the grower standard
  • More profit!

More trial data is available in other states, contact BVT for access.

Bee vectoring works. But don’t take our word for it. Ask the 40+ American berry growers who saw it in action in the last growing season. Watch and hear what some of these growers have to say about using bee vectoring:

This ground-breaking system is highly targeted, all-natural and good for crops, people and the environment.
