Protecting Pollinators in Ornamental Horticulture

Sat. July 14| 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM | A223

The IR-4 Project is coordinating a multidisciplinary project studying how best to protect pollinators while growing healthy ornamental horticulture crops. We will present the overall research objectives and outcomes so far for determining the pollinator attractiveness of the top selling plants, insecticide residues in pollen and nectar, comparisons of efficacy and toxicology, and the path to developing more robust recommended practices for growers. This session is eligible for LA CES credits.
