Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans
The Xerces Society’s Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans identify baseline habitat conditions for pollinators and other beneficial insects on your farm, and offer recommendations that can increase their abundance.
Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans outline farm conservation strategies designed to improve pollinator foraging and nesting habitat. These conservation practices can benefit farms by enhancing crop pollination and yields, and increasing natural pest suppression.
