Spring is a vital time for protecting pollinators. and the BeSure! campaign from the Growing Matters Coalition helps growers keep these important insects protected.

The coalition says when choosing crop protection tools, both effectiveness
and potential impact on the environment must be considered. Protecting bees and
other wildlife is a major part of good stewardship practices and is why Growing
Matters launched BeSure!, an initiative to support growers and applicators in
accomplishing this important goal.
