Guide for farmers Farming with Alternative Pollinators (FAP)
Stefanie Christmann, Patrick Lhomme. (28/8/2019). Guide for farmers Farming with Alternative Pollinators (FAP).
The field guide gives some insight in the diversity of Moroccan pollinators, it shows how some of them look like and for which crops they are effective. The guide shows their habitat requirements, for example if they nest in soil or if they need hollow stems (e.g. from harvested canola) or dead wood and how farmers can provide such nesting materials or safer nesting sites. The guide shows farmers how they can reduce the negative impacts of chemicals on pollinators, for instance always do weeding before spraying. It reduces the amount you need. Always spray only before sunrise and after sunset. The guide includes visual instructions how to spray.
