Pesticides, Pollinators and Drift: What You Need to Know

May 20

May 20, 2019
Wichita, Kansas

The Kansas Rural Center will host a workshop on the impacts of pesticides and herbicides on pollinators, beekeepers, farmers, and local foods initiatives. In the morning, the workshop will cover how pesticides impact pollinators and the role that agriculture plays in pollinator decline, but also how a number of farming strategies that are gaining traction in Kansas reduce or eliminate pesticide use and can help the farmers’ bottom lines. In the afternoon, the impacts of herbicide drift on pollinators and specialty crop farmers will be explored.
