Bees help feed and fuel communities by pollinating crops. In fact, some scientists estimate that one out of every three bites of food we eat exists because of animal pollinators like bees. From plants to final product, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has programs to help bee and honey producers every step of the way. Our programs can help protect and conserve habitat, protect your investments and recover from disasters impacting your operation.

Webinar on USDA Conservation Support for Bees and Other Pollinators, Agricultural Production

Supporting pollinators is critical to our food security and a key USDA conservation focus in collaboration with farmers, ranchers, and other land managers nationwide.

On June 20 at 2:00 p.m. eastern, Dr. Elissa Olimpi will share findings on the value of pollinator practices applied through voluntary conservation programs including the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program and Conservation Stewardship Program and the Farm Service Agency’s Conservation Reserve Program. This free, one-hour Conservation Outcomes Webinar will provide takeaways from a study conducted by Virginia Tech in collaboration with USDA’s Conservation Effects Assessment Project. Findings may be used by agricultural producers and other land managers, conservationists, and researchers to prioritize conservation efforts that will deliver the greatest benefits to pollinators and production agriculture across the U.S.
