Stakeholders Asked to Participate in Pesticide-Pollinator Awareness Survey

January 15, 2016


ATTENTION: beekeepers, growers/landowners and pesticide users

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) has developed a Managed  Pollinator Protection Plan (MP3), whose purpose is  to establish a systematic and comprehensive approach to mitigate the risks of pesticides to bees and other pollinators while supporting both crop protection and insect pollination. Most importantly, this MP3 is developed through open communication and coordination among key stakeholders; beekeepers, growers/landowners, and pesticide users.

We now invite you to participate in a state-wide pesticide-pollinator awareness survey that aims to collect important background information about the current state of knowledge, common practices, concerns, and other relevant information about pesticides and pollinators in Florida, directly from its stakeholders.

The information obtained with this survey will be used to measure the success of the Managed Pollinator Protection Plan over time and will help tailor our outreach efforts.

This survey is completely anonymous, and no one, not even FDACS, will be able to associate you or your company with any of the responses.

Completing this survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
Please choose and only complete the survey that most closely reflects your role in Florida Agriculture.
