Description

BeeConnected helps to connect farmers and nearby beekeepers. Instant notifications inform farmers of registered beehives near their properties and secure messaging allows sharing of information on crop protection product activities.

Australia has one of the healthiest honey bee colonies in the world and BeeConnected helps farmers and beekeepers work together to protect bees for the benefit of Australian agriculture and the environment.

There are three user profiles available on BeeConnected – Farmer, Beekeeper and Contractor.

Farmer

Any farmer who owns property and would like to be informed of, and connected with, beekeepers near to their farm will find BeeConnected a valuable tool. After registering as a user, farmers can register the location of their property. If a beekeeper registers the location of their beehives within 10km of a farmer’s property, both parties will be notified and will be able to discuss their activities further using the secure messaging service.

If they wish, farmers may also register the time and specific location of crop protection activities they are planning, such as the spray application of pesticides. Farmers can find their paddock by exploring near their current location, exploring near a registered property, or searching GoogleMaps. Switching between street and satellite view makes it easier to find specific paddocks using nearby roads and geographical features.

If a farmer registers an activity within 10km of registered beehives, they will be notified, as will the beekeeper. The two parties can then exchange any further details using the secure messaging system.

Beekeeper

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.

Contractor

Any contractor whose services include the application of crop protection products and would like to be informed of, and connected with, beekeepers nearby their activities will find BeeConnected to be a valuable tool.

Contractors can use BeeConnected to register the time and location of crop protection activities they are planning, such as the spray application of pesticides. Contractors can find their paddock, by exploring nearby to their current location or searching on GoogleMaps. Switching between street and satellite view makes it easier to find specific paddocks using nearby roads and geographical features.
If a contractor registers an activity within 10km of registered beehives, they will be notified, as will the beekeeper. The two parties can then exchange further details using the secure messaging system.
