Promote Pollinators and Wikifarmer are looking forward to hosting a free webinar on March 22nd at 15:00-17:00 CET. By organizing this webinar, we would like to connect the communities of scientists and farmers and raise awareness among farmer for the importance of pollinators and other beneficial insects. We encourage all of you to join the webinar, whether you are a scientist, an agronomist, a farmer, a student or just a pollinator enthusiast.

This free webinar will focus on their role and importance for the agri-food sector and the farmers specifically. 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, we have gathered 5 experts from around the world and top institutions to analyze the importance of pollinators and Integrated Pest Management at the farm level.
