Our supplement and vitamin bottles have nutrition labels on them of course, but what do we know about where these botanicals were grown?

Ashish Malik is leading a company that is disrupting the agriculture industry with a precision application that harnesses the natural pollination process. The CEO of Bee Vectoring Technologies (BVT) explained that the company’s patent-pending bee vectoring technology uses bees to deliver a special formula to flowering food crops that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases. The process is completely natural, uses no water and is harmless to bees, animals and humans.

The system, which has earned landmark EPA approval, uses the simple process of bee pollination to replace traditional crop spraying. The bees walk through a tray filled with the fungus powder before exiting their hive. The bees then drop spores of the powder on each plant they visit where it’s absorbed which enables them to block destructive diseases.

“Bee vectoring is an all-natural approach that advances sustainable agriculture. BVT’s unique natural precision agriculture technology is a viable alternative to the inefficient practice of spraying crops globally,”​ said Malik.
