The Professional Beekeepers Community of Practice (CoP) has been established to meet the needs of rural and regional Australia for the extension of knowledge and promote collaboration on important issues to commercial beekeeping.

Led by passionate and knowledgeable industry experts from around Australia, the Professional Beekeeping community provides the most recent, relevant and accurate information on the latest research and technological developments, best beekeeping practices and business solutions for the commercial beekeeping industry.

The ExtensionAUS platform was first launched in 2014 with Crop Nutrition and Field Crop Diseases Communities of Practice. The platform continues to grow with many more communities coming on board providing extension networks to collaborate and share expertise and resources online.

Our CoP is made of scientists, researchers, technical specialists, educators and commercial beekeepers with expertise in the areas of honey bee nutrition, queen breeding, pests and diseases, vocational education, pollination and managing beekeeping businesses around Australia.
