beehero's smart beehives monitor hive health in real-time to provide precision pollination

beehero is employing smart beehives to maximize crop yields through precision pollination services, offering growers quality assurance to their bees. the california-based company, which operates the largest database of bee pollination performance and analysis, measures pollination quality and optimizes hive deployment. beehero recently announced $4 million in seed funding, which will enable it to implement technology and services for growers that radically de-risk pollination and stimulate maximum output potential during pollination cycles.

beehero ensures healthy and hyper-efficient pollinator bees by continuously tracking and optimizing pollination through a combination of machine learning algorithms and low-cost sensors, including smart beehives, that monitor hive health in real-time. in this way, it manages to increase crop yields by up to 30 percent on average for 70 percent of major crops. by monitoring hives, the company ensures they lead to healthy, productive colonies, which results in fewer losses and lower operational costs.beehero's smart beehives monitor hive health in real-time to provide precision pollination

 

 

as the number of crops requiring bee pollination is increasing, it is creating unprecedented urgency for managed honey bee colonies that help farmers meet surging consumer demand. according to the company, in the US alone, more than two million colonies move around the country each year to states with ideal climates and orchards: california for almonds, iowa and illinois for soybeans, washington for apples, maine for blueberries, and massachusetts for cranberries. disturbing increases in the mortality rate of global pollinator bees are having overwhelming financial repercussions for farmers facing crop losses and straining the global food supply chain.beehero's smart beehives monitor hive health in real-time to provide precision pollination

 

 

‘stronger pesticides, fewer resources, and exponential demand are threatening modern agriculture,’ says itai kanot, co-founder and chief beekeeper at beehero. ‘we need to help growers do more with less.’ the company currently has over 20 thousand hives, or an estimated one billion bees, already in contract.beehero's smart beehives monitor hive health in real-time to provide precision pollination beehero's smart beehives monitor hive health in real-time to provide precision pollination
