US: Pollinator website launched

July 20, 2015

Editor’s Note: The Horticultural Research Institute’s pollinator website is here.

From: Floral Daily

A website that will help guide industry members’ efforts to safeguard pollinators launched last week. The interactive site includes new materials and information available to any industry member who wants to show how the plants and flowers grown by the floral industry contribute to bee and other pollinator health, said Lin Schmale, SAF’s senior director of government relations.


The website is an important part of the industry’s Bee and Pollinator Stewardship Initiative. Launched last year as a joint effort of SAF, AmericanHort, the American Floral Endowment and the Horticultural Research Institute, the initiative funnels industry dollars to support research on pollinator health and to develop best practices for growers. It will be key in helping to counter environmental activists’ claims that horticulture’s growing practices and use of neonicotinoid chemicals put bees and other pollinators at risk.
