In five days, the team visited 12 cities and met with 14 pollinator experts, including researchers, conservationists, highway vegetation management specialists, golf course superintendents, entomologists, agronomists and farmers.
“Highlighting the ways various individuals and organizations are helping pollinators thrive was the primary goal of this road trip,” says Caydee Savinelli, Ph.D., pollinator and IPM stewardship lead at Syngenta. “Pollinator health and stewardship are important to agriculture and Syngenta, and our Operation Pollinator program is making a positive impact.”
But, Savinelli notes, caring for pollinators is much larger than any one company. “Improving pollinator health and practicing good stewardship take the combined effort, support and expertise of multiple stakeholders,” she says.
