Bee Vectoring Technologies International (BEE) has signed nine new blueberry growers as clients.

The new clients, including three of the largest berry producers in the Midwest United States, mean tripled sales commitments for Bee Vectoring Technologies among blueberry growers in the Midwest.

At 90,000 acres, the U.S. blueberry market represents about a third of the 270,000-acre global market.

BVT has pioneered a natural precision agriculture system that replaces chemical pesticides by delivering biological pesticide alternatives to crops using commercially grown bees.

Blueberry growers in the Midwest are particularly impacted by Anthracnose, a type of fungus-causing fruit rot, which can lead to substantial economic loss through reduced yield, shelf life and fruit quality.

These growers will use BVT’s proprietary biological fungicide and natural precision agriculture system to mitigate the effects of fruit rot.

Ian Collinson, Sales Manager at Bee Vectoring Technologies, commented,

“Midwest growers use the BVT system to combat Anthracnose, reduce early fruit drop, and cut down on chemical pesticide spray intervals and intensity. Large growers looking for new solutions have been especially keen to try the BVT system with its totally organic approach and zero residues.”

Michigan, the main blueberry growing state in the Midwest, is following the same sales adoption pattern that BVT experienced in Georgia.

Ashish Malik, CEO of Bee Vectoring Technologies, commented,

“We anticipate this strong momentum to continue in lead up to and through this year’s growing season and look forward to announcing more news soon in other US regions.”

BVT expects to be added incrementally to growers’ operations based on positive results over the next two to three seasons.

Bee Vectoring Technologies is focused on the control of pests and enhancement of crops and ornamentals by biological controls in a variety of application processes.

Bee Vectoring Technologies International (BEE) is up 5.19 per cent and is trading at $0.405 per share as of 12:16 pm ET.
