This is a repeat and re-cut version of our featured program recorded August 2010. Three experts discuss the problems facing pollinators of all types but especially the honeybee. Mace Vaughn, director of pollinator conservation at the Xerces Society, Ramesh Sagili, Senior researcher at Oregon State University department of Horticulture, and Glen Andresen, a local bee keeper and master gardener are the guests. We also paid a visit to the Foothills Honey Company. Commercial bee producer and pollination service operator George Hansen takes to a blueberry farm to show us how the business works. George is worried about losses due to CCD and believes agricultural methods and the lack of sustainable practices are contributing to the problem. His operation tries to mitigate those problems.
