The Agronomics of Pollinator Stewardship
A Syngenta group recently commemorated National Pollinator Week (June 18-24) with a road trip up I-35 – the Monarch Highway. The group traveled through TX, OK, KS, IA and MN. Along the way, they recognized a diverse cross-section of people who contribute to pollinator health and stewardship, including researchers, conservationists, golf course superintendents and agronomists and growers.
In Slater, IA, Syngenta agronomy service representative Dean Grossnickle discussed the decision-making process growers might consider when looking to convert marginal farmland to pollinator habitat.
In Peterson, MN, Syngenta agronomy service representative Tim Dahl, who maintains over 12 acres of pollinator habitat on his property, spoke about his passion for farming, protecting the land and the importance of everyone working together to protect pollinators.
