Provide recommendations to improve and increase forage in USDA Farm Bill Conservation Program Recommendations

Coalition members offer consensus recommendations to increase the pollinator value and cost-effectiveness of USDA Farm bill private lands conservation programs like the Conservation Reserve Program. These programs provide critical habitat for bees and other pollinators.

Accelerating practical solutions to improve bee nutrition

The Coalition is encouraging the development of exciting new ideas to improve honey bee nutrition:

Promote bee health through the implementation of new on-the-ground projects
