Fruit and vegetable pollinator survey – let your opinion count
Editor’s note: This article is from the archives of the MSU Crop Advisory Team Alerts. Check the label of any pesticide referenced to ensure your use is included.
We are working with a diverse group of researchers and farm educators to develop a strategic research and education proposal to the USDA Specialty Crops Research Initiative grant program. The focus of the proposal is on understanding the role of native bee pollinators in specialty crops and how to improve habitat and farm management to increase pollination by bees. To help us develop the most relevant research for agricultural producers – and to help us assess the current level of awareness among those producers – we are conducting a brief survey.
