Learn how to support beneficial insects (pollinators and natural enemies of crop pests) on farms.

Pollinators and other beneficial insects help ensure healthy crop harvests. Participate in this webinar to learn how to support pollinators and natural enemies of crop pests (predators and parasitoids) by providing diverse habitat and protection from pesticides. This webinar highlights research showing how diverse habitat adjacent to cropland supports improved pollination and reduces pest pressure

This webinar is sponsored by the USDA NRCS East National Technology Support Center. Contact Nancy Adamson, Ph.D., Pollinator Conservation Specialist, Xerces Society, for more information about beneficial insects.
