Pollination and Farm Resilience

SWCC is working with six canola farmers and orchardists to develop revegetation programs aimed at improving pollination rates. By identifying and attracting beneficial pollinators like insects and birds, farm businesses can become more productive and resilient to changing conditions, as well as enhancing habitat for native species.

Demonstration sites across the Southwest are testing innovative practices for increasing pollinator numbers, including planting unique species mixes for continuous food and shelter, interrow cropping, and hedge development using dense pollinator-friendly natives. Personalised farm management plans and flowering calendars have been developed for each participating land manager.

“The project is identifying innovative revegetation practices and native plants as food sources for pollinators, and raising awareness with farmers about these practices. It’s a win-win for both farmers and biodiversity”

Wendy Wilkins, Project Manager.
