Any beekeeper who would like to be connected with farmers near their beehives, or would like to be informed of crop protection activities near their beehives, will find BeeConnected a valuable tool. After registering as a user, beekeepers may register the current location, or intended future location, of their beehives. If their beehives are registered within 10km of a farmer’s property, or a registered crop protection product activity, they will be notified, as will the farmer, and the two parties will be able to exchange further details using the secure messaging system.
It is anticipated that beekeepers may wish to register the future location of their hives in advance of moving them, to have discussions with nearby farmers ahead of time. BeeConnected allows for this to happen. Beekeeper activities can be registered for anytime in the future, in blocks of up to two months at a time. If beekeepers wish to keep bees in one location for longer than two months, then that time can be extended prior to the expiry of the activity for up to a further two months.
BeeConnected is optimised for Android and Apple smart phones.
