This episode of the series Web of bees brings a very important subject: the Syndrome of Collapse of Beehives. This name occurs to the phenomenon that has brought about the disappearance of these pollenizers in several countries, mainly of the Northern Hemisphere. The scientists still look for an explanation the causes of the syndrome. Nevertheless, it seems that there is no unique reason, but a set of factors that has taken to the diminution in the number of bees.
The heroins of the field? They are the bees, by all means! Its contribution goes beyond the honey: they are essential for the pollination, that is a fundamental process for the food production. Sight how it works observing the sixth episode of our series Web on the bees.
Traditionally usually one thinks to the borduras of the lots as sources of insects and weeds, reason why the same practices of handling are applied that in the rest of the lot. In Expo Syngenta Camet, Ing. Santiago Poggio (FAUBA and CONICET) explained: these areas are only a source of weeds or plagues in the measurement that are handled as an agricultural lot. If we pulverized the margins with weed killers and insecticides, which we are going to do is to outside perpetuate the problems of the lot, even with the possibility of generating resistant insects and weeds.

Within the framework of Syngenta Expo Cereals, realised in the Experimental Station of Camet, the project appeared multifunctional Landscapes one of the proposals on biodiversity including within the global strategy of the well-known company as The Good Growth Plan.
Faculty of Sciences of Uruguay will study the impact of the pollination with the support of Syngenta
In a bet to the protection and fortification of the biodiversity and to the promotion of a viable agricultural model, Syngenta, world-wide leader in agronegocios, signed an agreement with the Faculty of Sciences of the University of the Republic (UdelaR), with the aim of supporting a study during one season that will allow to determine the contribution of the insects and the pollination to the increase of the production of soybean seeds and its quality.
