Apr 15, 2017Michigan spring pollinator meeting set
It is an annual challenge to manage pests effectively while protecting pollinators. Michigan State University (MSU) Extension, in coordination with the Michigan Pollinator Initiative (MPI), will be holding an educational session on the pollinator issues in commercial fruit.
MPI scientist Meghan Milbrath and others will be speaking on the importance of pollinators, which farm inputs endanger pollinators and some best management practices that individual producers can employ to reduce the risk. The program will answer the question: “Can fungicides also harm honeybees?” with an update on the latest research on the subject.
All attendees are welcome to join us for dinner afterwards. The program will be held April 27 at 3 p.m. at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center, 1791 Hillandale Rd., Benton Harbor, MI 49022.
Registration is $15.00 per person before April 20, thereafter and at the door it’s $20.00 per person.
