The Farm Bill, a New Ally in Native Pollinator Conservation

Abstract:

Beginning with the 1985 United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Bill and continuing through the current 2002 Farm Bill, the conservation provisions and programs of the Farm Bill that target fish and wildlife on private working lands administered by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), have expanded dramatically. Today, most Farm Bill programs have financial and technical assistance for conservation of fishery and wildlife resource (including native pollinators) concerns co-equal with the more traditional agency focus on soil erosion, water quality and air quality.
The Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP), and the Conservation Security Program (CSP) are three Farm Bill programs wherein numerous states have specifically targeted efforts for native pollinator habitat conservation that have yielded exciting results. Projects range from general habitat conservation practices, (e.g. hedgerows, riparian buffers, and integrated pest management) to habitat creation, enhancement and management for specific native pollinators including several federal or state listed, threatened, or endangered species.
Technical assistance and guidance for planning and implementation of Farm Bill programs is provided by NRCS Field Office Conservationists. NRCS has developed an array of technical publications, training sessions, and guidance documents that provide NRCS field personnel with knowledge and skills specifically to assist with the restoration and management of native pollinator habitat on America’s farms and ranches.
