Plant Health for Pollinator Health Initiative
Crop production and environmental health are entwined. At the SBC, we share concern for the health of pollinators and the direct impacts pollinator health issues have on crop productivity. Additionally, we understand that what is planted, how its is grown, and how plant health problems are addressed impacts the broader environment--including pollinators. To protect pollinators and sustainably preserve crop productivity, the SBC has assembled a group of diverse plant and pollinator health experts to solve plant health problems in ways that minimize impacts on pollinators and the environment. We conduct research, including community-led objectives, and disseminate research-based information to homeowners and farmers to foster best practices that promote crop productivity and environmental sustainability.
