January 17, 2023

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Location: Webinar

With growing interest in planting pollinator habitat, how can farmers and other land managers make sure the habitat is protected from pesticides used in nearby crops? Emily and Karin both work with Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation and will share some of the key pesticide risks to pollinators. They will also discuss practical solutions for creating healthy pollinator habitat that is protected from pesticide drift and contamination. This farminar will highlight case studies and lessons learned from different types of habitat plantings, including prairie strips, on Midwestern farms.
