Online Free Webinar - Wikifarmer & Promote Pollinators
Pollinators : The Farmer’s Partner for Sustainable Production

March 22nd, 15:00-17:00 CET

As we believe that farmers and scientists should work in close collaboration to accomplish sustainable crop production, the same is true for farmers and pollinators.

For this reason, Wikifarmer and Promote Pollinators have gathered 5 experts from around the world and top institutions to analyse the importance of pollinators and Integrated Pest Management at the farm level. In this online, free webinar, we would like to encourage all of you to join, whether you are a scientist, an agronomist, a farmer, a student or just a pollinator enthusiast.

Meet our speakers :

Koos Biesmeijer (Leiden University) – Introduction to pollinators and the threats they face today.
