Preventing or Mitigating Potential Negative Impacts of Pesticides on Pollinators

Archived for viewing anytime HERE.

Participants will learn to use the NRCS conservation planning process to prevent and/or mitigate pest management risks to pollinators and pollinator habitat.

Pollinators are a diverse component of on-farm wildlife, and they are critical for plant reproduction. More than 80 percent of plants either require or benefit from pollinators to produce seeds or fruit. This webinar is designed to help conservation planners use the NRCS conservation planning process to prevent and/or mitigate pest management risks to pollinators and pollinator habitat. The presenters will lead you through the steps to determine whether pesticide use on a farm or ranch poses potential hazards to pollinators, and then help you develop conservation and/or Integrated Pest Management plans that prevent or mitigate these hazards.This webinar is sponsored by the USDA NRCS National Wildlife Team located at theCentral National Technology Support Center.

Presenters: 
Giulio Ferruzzi, Ph.D., Conservation Agronomist, USDA NRCS West National Technology Support Center, Portland, OR

Mace Vaughan, Pollinator Program Director, Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation and Joint Pollinator Coordinator, USDA NRCS West National Technology Support Center, Portland, OR
