We talk the importance of pollinators in tree crops such as almonds, how flowers aren’t just flowers, and about the work being done in cooperation with S&W Seed Company on making available floral resources. Trial work is being conducted in the NSW Riverina where Lea spends much of her time collecting samples and analysing data.

We also chat about how not just bees, but many other pollinating insects exist, and how they are all integral to the success of global agricultural ventures.
