For thousands of years, they have been cooperating to produce flourishing fields, lush vegetable & fruit orchards, or delicious honey. Pollinators and agriculture are inherently linked so the recent decline of bee colonies calls for action by all involved.
To help address the issues of bee health and safety, several European interest groups for agriculture and biodiversity have teamed up to publish a new “Pollinators and Agriculture” brochure.
Hot off the press, the publication, which is part of a series that focuses on “key biodiversity and agriculture” topics, offers up-to-date information and addresses some of the burning questions: How important are pollinators in agriculture? Is there a pollinator crisis? What are the factors impacting pollinator health? How can farmers and beekeepers cooperate to enhance bee safety? How can greater farm productivity and pollinator protection work hand in hand?
The brochure is available in English and German.
