Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet, and because of their laborious work ethic, we owe many thanks to this amazing yet often under appreciated insect. (Bees are Important)
Many of the foods and crops we rely on need or, at the very least, benefit from bee pollination. Here's a list of some of those crops.   (Bee pollination Important)
It has often been said that bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Most crops grown for their fruits (including vegetables such as squash, cucumber, tomato and eggplant), nuts, seeds, fiber (such as cotton), and hay (alfalfa grown to feed livestock), require pollination by insects. (plants need pollination)

Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corp headquartered in Creve Coeur, Greater St. Louis, Missouri.  It is a leading producer of genetically engineered seed, roundup, and glyphosate-based Herbicide
