Monsanto purchased Remebee last fall.
Interesting. According to Monsanto's Technology Ussage Guide, Roundup Ready (RR) winter canola, RR spring canola, RR alfalfa, and RR sugarbeets are not permitted to be planted in any wildlife feed plots. This is called a "planting limitation". If one is planting for bees, would that be considered a wildlife feed plot? Essentially people who plant RR crops for deer and turkeys (foodplotters) were thrown under the bus, to mitigate the risk of cross polination, ... in order to clear the legal path for farmers to continue to plant these RR crops. Would a bee planting be considered a wildlife feed plot?????
Would a bee planting be considered a wildlife feed plot?????
I would say yes.
Would the world be a better place without Monsanto?
