Field margins supporting pollinators_51303

Those working to protect pollinators are being encouraged to submit an application for the 2019 European Bee Award.

We know that many NFU members put a huge amount of time and effort into protecting and enhancing pollinators on farm and this award is looking to recognise such commitment.

Two prizes of €4,000 are up for grabs for the deserving winners of each of the following two categories:

  • Category 1: Land management practices to protect and enhance pollinators in the farmed environment
  • Category 2: Application of innovative technological solutions to reduce farming operations' impact on pollinators

There will also be a ‘Jury Special Mention’ in the form of a diploma of recognition for a ‘small-scale’ project, farm or initiative.

For more information, including a link to the application form, please click here – the deadline for applications is 6 September 2019.
