We promote on-farm practices and policies to enhance pollinator stewardship and to control crop pests while safeguarding bee health.
Crop Best Practices
The Coalition develops crop- and product-specific Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices and messaging to improve bee and pollinator safety.
We also promote communication and understanding among stakeholders to raise awareness of crop pest management issues for bee health, disseminate existing information, create a network to address emerging issues in a collaborative environment; and support region- and crop-specific best management practices (BMPs).
