A habitat-preservation initiative and an innovative mowing technology are the two winners of this year’s European Bee Award, organised by the European Landowners’ Organisation and European Agricultural Machinery. The two projects were among 27 entries from 17 European countries.
The project “B-lines – connecting landscape for pollinators” from the UK won the land management practices category, while the “Double Knife” mowing system from Germany won the award for innovative technology solutions.
B-lines is focused on restoring wild-flower habitats to protect pollinators in the UK. The double-knife mower is an environmentally friendly machine designed to avoid damaging insects or amphibians found on wild flowers or in grass.
Congratulations to the teams involved!
