On the 28th of October Rafel Beltrán from IMEDEA (Balearic Islands, SPAIN) participated in a talk aimed at farmers and beekeepers. In Europe, 87% of agricultural crops depend on pollinators and the economic value represented by the pollination ecosystem service is estimated at € 22 billion. Eliminating the use of pesticides and adopting agroecological techniques that increase the biodiversity of entomofauna in agroecosystems is essential to stop the decline of pollinators and the loss of biodiversity.

Thanks to APAEMA (@ apaema.mallorca) for the invitation and for their excellent work in agroecology and conservation of biodiversity in agroecosystems.
