Pollinators play a significant role in successful crop production.
Research suggests that native pollinators are responsible for a larger percentage of crop success than had long been supposed.
Modern agricultural practices can disrupt native pollinator reproduction. Eli Bloom, a WSU PhD candidate, has been researching pollinator abundance on local organic farms, as well as practical solutions open to organic agriculture. Tonight Eli will present his preliminary results to our program.
Join us 4th Monday most months at Traditions, 7 p.m.
