Bees on TV

Honey Bees are some of the hardest workers in agriculture. A recent episode of "Agri Arkansas" on AETN featured our state's bees and some local beekeepers.


Section 18 renewed

Arkansas has received a Section 18 emergency exemption for the purchase and use of HopGuard for 2015. If you apply any Section 18 product, remeber to report its use to the Plant Board. If nobody reports using this product, the exemption will not be renewed next year.


Great Fall Meeting in Mountain View

The ABA's annual fall meeting was held on October 10-11, 2014, at the Ozark Folk Center, in scenic Mountian View, Arkansas. Our keynote speaker this year was Dr. Jeff Harris, from Mississippi State University. We also heard from Audrey Sherdian, Don Johnson, Yu Cheng Zhu, David Burns and Jon Zawislak.


Beekeeping Classes

The UA Cooperative Extension Service teaches beekeeping short courses around the state. These free classes can be a great way for new beekeepers to become familiar with the basics, or as a refresher course for experienced beekeepers. Check the current schedule of upcoming classes to locate one near you.
