MSU Receives Funding for National Crop Pollination Project

The United States Department of Agriculture has awarded Michigan State University $1.6 million to lead a national crop pollination research and extension project.

The five-year project will focus on supporting specialty crop yields and profit by supporting wild and managed bees. The project will look at specialty crop pollination and develop region- and crop-specific Integrated Crop Pollination management approaches to diversify pollination sources and maintain consistent crop yields.

These may include honey bees, wild bees and alternative managed bees such as bumble bees. The extension component of the project will develop recommendations on how to manipulate farm landscapes to support native bee and honey bee populations, by drawing on the team's research in specialty crop farms across the nation including almonds in California, cherries in Michigan, pumpkins in Pennsylvania and blueberries in Florida.
