Shelby Fleischer and David Biddinger are members of a US-wide consortium of researchers and Extension specialists who received funding from the USDA to study pollination of multiple specialty crops in different regions throughout the country.

The consortium will develop crop and regional recommendations for management practices that will improve crop pollination and yields. The consortium has been awarded $1.6 million for the first year of a  projected five year, $9 million grant.
