/

Pollinators are essential to the production of many of the micronutrient rich fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and oils we eat. In fact, 5-8% of global crop production depends on animal pollination for sustained production, yield and quality. In this episode we will talk to 3 experts in the field. We will first hear from Dr. Christian Maus- Entomology & Pollination Science Lead at Bayer Crop Science.  He has been studying pollination globally for over 20 years and will talk to us about the importance of pollination and some of the challenges. We will also hear from two startups, Omer Davidi, CEO & Co-Founder of BeeHero https://www.beehero.io/ and Ellie Symes CEO of Bee Corp https://www.thebeecorp.com/ about their two different high tech solutions to monitor and improve the health and lives of bees.
