Farm Pollination Buffer Mix

Planting a pollination buffer is the best thing you can do to provide foraging areas to feed and attract native bees, and other pollinating insects and keep them around for your crops all year long. According to The Xerces Society, native pollinators could enhance crop yields because they are often more efficient pollinators than honey bees. Planting pollinator habitat near farm crops may aid in the reduction of pest species as well, by making use of beneficial predatory insects that prey on insect crop pests.
