The event focused on higher tier testing and included plenty of in-field experience. Topics covered included: bee biology, ecology, testing and sampling methods, risk assessment, bee matrix residue studies (sampling pollen and nectar from the crops, hives and bees) and side-effect assessments in tunnel and open field brood studies. The team are now fully equipped to conduct this season’s pollinator testing programs for SynTech’s clients.IMG_3722
