Research Bee Pollen to Netherlands

APHIS Facilitates Export of Pollen for Apiculture Research to the Netherlands

APHIS Facilitates Export of Pollen for Apiculture Research to the Netherlands:  In January 2015, USDA-APHIS reached agreement with the Netherlands for certification for pollen to be used in apiculture research.  Previously, this trade could not occur because the Netherlands required the same certification for pollen intended for commercial apiculture, which requires disease programs APHIS does not have in place.  The value of this trade accomplishment is estimated at less than $1 million per year.
