Pollinator Protection Plan (P3) Activities

The Indiana Pesticide Review Board (IPRB) has been working with a variety of stakeholders since early 2015 to develop a plan that will encompass activities and policies that could be helpful in protecting pollinators from stressors that may be detrimental to the health of both managed and native pollinators in Indiana. While the IPRB Pollinator Protection Plan (P3) will certainly try to address any pesticide stressor issues, the plan is very likely to also include a broader variety of related issues and recommendations that could be important to improving pollinator health in general.

Following is a link to the most current draft version of the P3 being developed by the Board plus other related links and references that may be of interest. At the current time the Board plans to further discuss and develop the plan at quarterly Board meetings. These meetings are open to the public. The IPRB meeting schedule and agendas can be found on the Indiana Pesticide Review Board webpage.
