What are pollinators?

N.C. Pollinator Protection Strategy

Pollinators are in trouble. Habitat loss, disease and environmental changes have contributed to the decline of pollinators, according to USDA-NRCS. The best way to reverse this is a multi-step approach to support pollinators through expanding and protecting habitats on the farm and protecting pollinators.

Listen as Commissioner Troxler talks with the Southern Farm Network about the importance of ag pollinators:

Three Steps to Pollinator Success

1. Recognize native pollinators and pollinator habitats already on the farm.

2. Adapt existing farm and land management practices to avoid causing undue harm to the pollinators already present.

3. Provide habitat for native bees on and around the farm.
