Grain on the Brain Podcasts

Season 2, Episode 3 – Farming with Pollinators

Why should we be aiming to increase biodiversity on our farms? What role do pollinators play in improving our crops and the land that we as grain farmers manage?
Our host, Scott Beaton, talks to native seed specialist Stephanie Frischie from the Xerces Society and farmer Allison Squires about why we should be thinking about biodiversity, and how we can start to go about doing it. Mike Killewald from the University of Manitoba tells us about the four-year pollinator project he’s working on with some of the results for its first year.
