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 encompasses 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 pesticide stressor issues, the plan also includes a broader variety of related issues and recommendations that could be important to improving pollinator health in general.

Following is a link to the Plan plus other related links and references that may be of interest. Since the Plan is considered an evolving effort that is targeted to be re-evaluated by the IPRB at least every three years, quarterly IPRB meetings will be the vehicle for these discussions and evaluations. These meetings are open to the public. The IPRB meeting schedule and agendas can be found on the Indiana Pesticide Review Board webpage.
