FARM BUREAU ISSUES STATEMENT ON USDA, EPA'S HONEY BEE REPORT
Statement by Bob Stallman, President, American Farm Bureau Federation

"The Agriculture Department/Environmental Protection Agency report issued today concludes what farmers and scientists have known for some time-that there isn't just one cause to the decline in honey bee numbers.

"It's a multitude of factors, which makes it even more important that we continue work on a solution through collaborative efforts among farmers, beekeepers, researchers, the federal government and the public.

"The good health of the honey bee is extremely important to American agriculture. Many farmers and ranchers require honey bees and other pollinators to produce a healthy, bountiful crop.

"Farm Bureau supports funding for research to find real answers to the Colony Collapse Disorder, as well as practical, effective methods to remedy the situation."
