Bee Vectoring Technologies Receives Chinese & Canadian Patent Approvals

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2016) - Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (the "Company" or "BVT") (TSX VENTURE:BEE) is pleased to announce that it has received a notice of application approval from the Canadian and Chinese patent and trademark offices for the following pending applications; Canadian Patent Application No. 2,867,076 Entitled: A FORMULATION COMPRISING A PARTICULATE CALCIUM SILICATE AND CLONOSTACHYS ROSEA FOR TREATING PLANTS Application relates to a formulation comprising a particulate calcium silicate and can contain Clonostachys rosea for treating plants (Vectorite™). BVT's Vectorite™ is a proprietary mixture of products that allows the inoculant to get attached to a bee's hairy legs and body as it walks through the tray on their way out of the hive. The Vectorite allows for delivery of BVT inoculums (including BVT CR7) either individually or together with other bio-controls and crop controls. Chinese Patent Application No. 201280028052.9 Entitled: APPARATUS FOR TREATMENT OF PLANTS Application relates to specialist apparatus for the treatment of plants (inoculum dispenser and tray). The BVT inoculum dispenser system is incorporated into the lid of commercial bumble bee hives. In the dispenser is a removable tray that contains, in powder form, the inoculant crop control and a mixture of products (Vectorite™) that allows the bees to effectively pick up the product on their way out of the hive. BVT's proprietary inoculant BVT CR7 is comprised of a specific strain of Clonostachys, a naturally occurring, organic fungus which is commonly ingested by humans and is 100% safe for consumption. Once in contact with plants, it acts as an Endophyte and plant protector, blocking highly destructive diseases like Botrytis, Sclerotinia, Rhizupus, Anthracnose, and Alternaria. These are amongst the most costly diseases to control using current incumbent methods which include multiple chemical sprays during a plant's lifecycle. As an example, an acre of strawberries is commonly treated with 300lbs of pesticide during a growth cycle at a cost of approximately $1200. The BVT system is positioning to become a foundational program for crop inoculation, substantially reducing, and in many cases mitigating fully, the requirement for prolific chemical spraying. It is able to deliver higher crop yields through disease controls and, in the absence of disease, longer shelf life at cost equal, to or lower than, current practices. In addition, unlike chemicals, which will commonly experience decreases in effectiveness over time due to resistance build up within the pathogens, the unique mode of pathogen control delivered by BVT CR7 means it is not subject to these same issues ensuring it remains a sustainable solution for international growers. BVT CEO, Michael Collinson said of the latest secured patents, "BVT has assembled an extensive patent portfolio and the continued approval of these patents within key territories such as China and Canada, countries in which we see significant future revenue potential, represents a continual increase in IP equity which is a key asset for the company." BVT is actively seeking three separate patents in 40 countries around the world relating to its system for biological control of pathogens in crops and delivery system using bees. About Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. BVT has developed and owns patent-pending bee vectoring technology (consisting of a proprietary tray dispenser containing a unique carrier agent) that is designed to harmlessly utilize commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for a variety of powdered mixtures comprised of organic compounds that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases, while at the same time stimulating and enhancing the same crops. This unique and proprietary process facilitates a targeted delivery of crop controls using the simple process of bee pollination to replace traditional crop spraying, resulting in better yield, organic product and less impact on the environment without the use of water or disruptions to labour.

Bee Vectoring Technologies Confirms Serbian Sunflower and Soft Fruits Trials

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) - Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (the "Company" or "BVT") (TSX VENTURE:BEE) announced today a finalized agreement to conduct demonstrations of its organic crop protection system on sunflower crops in Serbia. Due to commence in July, the trials have been commissioned, and will be conducted by the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops "NS seme", whose commercial arm is involved. These trials are slated to follow a very similar protocol as those developed for trials on sunflowers being conducted by the research team at North Dakota State University that are scheduled to start later this summer in North and South Dakota. The purpose of these trials is to assess the reduction of Sclerotinia after exposure to the BVT system. Sclerotinia is a common and devastating problem in sunflowers and canola worldwide for which are there are no economically viable pathogen controls currently available. With successful trials in Europe and North America by universities, positive results should accelerate the ability for BVT to commercialize its system both in Serbia and possibly Turkey, one of the top 10 sunflower growers in the world. Serbian sunflower growers have approximately 300,000 acres of crops producing approximately 454,282 metric tons of sunflower seeds per annum and Turkey has approximately 1.2 million acres of crops producing in excess of 1.2 million tons. Both countries are significant sunflower growers and maintain their own regulations. The Company has also reached an agreement with the University of Belgrade's Faculty of Agriculture to expand their trials of the BVT system to include raspberry, sour cherries and blueberry crops during the 2017 growing season. Serbia is one of the world's largest raspberry growers in the world with 40,000 acres in production, producing 70,000 tonnes annually. These trials are being initiated to assess the reduction of Botrytis and Monolinia, the most common pathogens in soft fruits worldwide for which are there are serious concerns about pesticide load, residue and pathogen resistance build up. Successful trials could lead to early adoption in this country. Due to the unique nature of the BVT system and its use of organic, naturally occurring inoculants, it has a limited chance of resistance build up within plants. Of significant interest to raspberry growers is an extended shelf life of fruit as it enables them to maintain far higher levels of saleable fruit due to their ability to transport the delicate produce to market in a timely manner. In previous trials, the BVT system has demonstrated an ability to extend the shelf life of treated fruit. The Serbian trials were initiated through the Ecological Intensification Programme of the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) with major support from BVT. The IUBS is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation, established in 1919. Its objectives are:

to promote the study of biological sciences
to initiate, facilitate and coordinate research and other scientific activities necessitating international, interdisciplinary cooperation
to ensure the discussion and dissemination of the results of cooperative research, particularly in connection with IUBS scientific programmes
to support the organisation of international conferences and assist in the publication of their reports

The IUBS' Ecological Intensification Programme involves a dozen nations and is co-ordinated through The Arthur Dobbs Institute based in Waterloo, Ontario. They have been instrumental in reaching international universities and agricultural projects involving pollinators. As BVT enjoys increased market exposure, universities have shown increasing interest in conducting their own trials on its technology. These trials can be instrumental in the adoption of BVT technology by notable growers due to reinforced credibility within the agricultural industry. In recent weeks, BVT has received expressions of interest from Professors from Universities in Kenya, Japan and India. Representatives from these Universities are due to travel to meet with members of the BVT executive and R & D team during the months of in June and July in order to clearly establish opportunities and protocols for system trials within their respective countries. BVT continues to implement its strategic plan by initially focusing on a few key crops, Tier 1, within defined markets while addressing meaningful opportunities within strong alternative markets such as Serbia as and when they arise. The Serbian fruit production is significant to the company with over 590,000 acres in production with crops including, raspberries, sour cherries, apples, pears and plums. Successful university trials should greatly assist in the adoption of the BVT system in Serbia. About Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. BVT has developed and owns patent-pending bee vectoring technology (consisting of a proprietary tray dispenser containing a unique carrier agent) that is designed to harmlessly utilize commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for a variety of powdered mixtures comprised of organic compounds that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases, while at the same time stimulating and enhancing the same crops.
