wildflower strip

A wildflower strip such as this one next to a crop field in a farm in southwestern Montana can benefit farmers via both increased pollination services from native bees (leading to greater crop yield) and wildflower seed-sales revenue, all while helping to conserve and foster native bee populations. The strip pictured here is made up of 1-square-meter blocks, each planted with a different flower species, as part of a study by researchers at Montana State University.
