Maximizing Pollinator Health & Pollination Services on Farms

bumble bee on red clover sm horz.jpg​Over one-fifth of the land area of Wisconsin is farmland, and opportunities abound to benefit pollinators through agricultural management practices. For growers raising pollinator-dependent crops, the benefit to fostering pollinators is clear: good crop yield depends on healthy pollinator communities. But all growers and farmers can benefit from pollinator-friendly practices.

NEW: The University of Wisconsin is conducting an assessment to determine what practices are currently being used in Wisconsin to protect pollinators and enhance their habitats. We will use this information to direct further research and outreach efforts.  We are asking you to provide information into this assessment which should take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. 


Please email Deana Knuteson if you have questions about the survey. ​
