"Our BVT system increased the blueberry yield of Georgian grower"

Bee Vectoring Technologies International announces positive results with a leading Georgia blueberry grower using BVT’s natural precision agriculture system.

“This is one of our largest clients in the US Southeast, and we have quantified our system’s performance with him for the first time. He has been a BVT customer for the past two growing seasons, and during this past growing season, he was enthusiastic about participating in a research study to collect data and measure the BVT system’s effectiveness for increasing yield, controlling disease, and improving berry quality on both his conventional and organic blueberry fields,” said Ian Collinson, Sales Manager at BVT. “This data confirms that the BVT system is a tool that enables farmers to grow crops – even during challenges as demonstrated during last season’s severe weather and difficult growing conditions in Georgia.”

BVT’s VectorHive Bumblebee System was set up at the Georgia farmer’s blueberry field during the bloom period in early 2022. 

The 2022 independently collected data from this grower’s conventional and organic operations shows that BVT’s proprietary Vectorite with CR-7 (Clonostachys rosea CR-7) biological fungicide system offered significant advantages over traditional fungicide-only spray programs:

  • 33% higher marketable yield on organic blueberry crop
  • 12% higher marketable yield on conventional blueberry crop
  • 70% reduction in Anthracnose disease incidence (organic site)
  • 54% increase in healthy berries postharvest (organic site)

“The Georgia grower was pleased with these strong results as well as our desire to build a partnership that provided the ability to quantify the effectiveness of the BVT system,” said Mr. Collinson. “This positive data validates the BVT system and puts the Company in an excellent position to help all US Southeast growers similarly improve their blueberry harvests. We expect more clients in the Southeast to deploy BVT’s system across additional acreage based on these strong results. New customer acquisition will further accelerate as other growers see this positive data.”
