Bee Vectoring (BEE) has secured its first blueberry crops customer in California.

The Fresno-based customer will use BVT’s proprietary Vectorite with CR-7 (Clonostachys rosea CR-7) biological fungicide and natural precision agriculture system on their blueberry crops. The customer has also committed to a demonstration trial on their cherry orchards.

BVT’s award-winning technology, precision vectoring, allows naturally-derived pesticides (called biologicals) to be delivered directly to blooms. It helps control disease and increase yield while being exempt from key residue testing requirements.

This newest customer became aware of BVT’s effectiveness through contacts in Oregon who use the BVT system. The customer’s goals are to improve fruit quality, increase yield and better manage the disease. Expanding the use of BVT’s system from blueberries to cherries will be highly efficient, with almost no additional time or labour required since the cherry bloom will transition with the end of the blueberry bloom.

The opportunity for BVT in California is significant. The state is the country’s largest berry market. It has an estimated 55,000 acres of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, which make up 30 per cent of all American berry acreage. The United States is also the world’s second-largest cherry producer, second only to Turkey.

BVT is an agriculture technology company which has pioneered a natural precision agriculture system.

Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (BEE) opened trading at C$0.14 per share.
