Native Pollinators = $3 billion to Agriculture

Native pollinators are responsible for $3 of $20 billion of pollination each year. Farmers are utilizing vacant land for diversity to enhance native pollinators as well as predatory insects to help manage pests on their crops. Abandoning monoculture and embracing diversity on otherwise unused land boosts crop yields and helps boost habitat of native species.
