In recent years, the number of pollinators appears to be in decline due to various factors. Western Growers' members can learn more about current issues surrounding pollinators and best practices to sustain their services during the next Lunch & Learn webinar on April 27.
Pollinators are an essential component of both natural and agricultural ecosystems. While they support biodiversity and habitats, they also play a key role in the production of crops that require pollination—such as the case of most fruits and vegetables.
In this webinar, Dr. Walter S. Sheppard, the entomology department chair at Washington State University, will provide an overview of the importance of pollinators and facts associated with them. He will also focus on the latest news and science related to the bee collapse situation.
