In Field Strips for Pollinators is only part of the answer

At Good Gardeners International we see it is a fact that good farming comes from good gardening. This is the easiest way to trial and prove systems and integrate them into farming.

With the ongoing effects of chemical farming the need to step away from monocultures and chemicals is ever apparent. In this video it is more apparent that smaller fields are what is needed. Here it is going to be a balance between the amount of soil depletion which is increasing year by year due to the use of chemicals and now the forced introduction of some wildlife and pollinators etc., to try and combat the loss of species this is causing.

It would be far better to diversify agriculture from monoculture and move completely away from the use of chemicals, which are incidentally the cause of the decline in metal and physical health in the population because the nutritional quality of the  crop is also automatically decreasing,  and help communities become more self sufficient, get an outdoor life,  and train more people to become expert in food production. What is needed is education in traditional Farming and Gardening which will save us from the need for so much more Science of how to just increase pollinators.

The real reason for the decline in pollinators in the first place is the conviction that large scale farming is going to be the only way to feed the world.  It is the amount of soil depletion that this type of farming is creating with so much large scale high tech machinery which is the unseen underlying cause reducing the insect populations on the planet.

Therefore the successful farms and economy of the future will be smaller scale where you can preserve soil quality by good husbandry and where pollinators and bees will be in abundance naturally because there are no pesticides required to obtain higher yields.  Thus the nutritional quality of the crops will also automatically increase.
