The plight of our pollinators is a hot topic in legislature; political initiatives are in motion to protect the honey bee and monarch populations across the nation.

From the AG Journal, contributing writer Candace Krebs reports that “Pollinator health is one of three key legislative priorities the American Agri-Women organization decided to zoom in on this year, along with immigration reform and proposed clean water rules.”

This attention to the pollinator population is integral to the health of our food sources. Regulations on pesticides and other modern crop production tools are expected to go a long way towards saving these valuable, winged assets to our ecosystem.
