Pollinator Friendly Best Management PracticesAs the planters start to roll this spring, please encourage your neighbors to implement pollinator-friendly best management practices for treated seeds. Fill the planter at least 10 yards inside your field to protect nearby honeybee hives and flowering plants. Avoid shaking the bottom of the treated seed bag when filling the planter to reduce the release of dust that could have accumulated during transport.
