Pollinator hedgerows aid insects and growers

Uploaded by on Dec 13, 2011  | Fred Stolp in Butte County hosts the video crew at his walnut orchard where his pollinator hedgerow is providing plants suited to answer the needs of pollinators year round. Stolp also enjoys the aesthetics of the hedgerow. Soil Conservationist Rachael Morgan discusses the role of pollinators in California agriculture and how native pollinators can help augment this need, especially in the face of challenges faced by the domestic honeybees. Good conservation planning between the landowner and NRCS can help address practical challenges to the establishment of a hedgerow, such as weed control and irrigation.
