New LIFE project: Insect-Responsible Sourcing Regions

LIFE Insect-Responsible Sourcing Regions is committed to sustainable insect protection at landscape level. Its goal is not only to further disseminate proven measures for the promotion of pollinating insects in agriculture, but to consistently break new ground. In "Insect-Responsible Sourcing Regions," a positive ecological impact is no longer limited to the individual farm. Landscapes benefit holistically and the concept is transferable to many growing regions in Germany and the EU.
