Farming for Beneficial Insects – Webinar Thursday, July 11th, 2013
2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT
Webinar
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.

Learn how to attract native pollinators to your orchard, farm, or garden! This full day training will provide you with the latest science-based approaches to reversing the trend of pollinator declines, and will equip you with the recipes necessary to protect and manage habitat for these vital insects.
Quote:
Pollinators, which include bees, butterflies, and other insects are essential to our environment. One in three mouthfuls of food and drink we consume comes from pollinated fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Biologists from the Xerces Society will teach you ways to attract native pollinators to your orchard, farm, or garden.
