National Pollinator Week Features Iowa’s Newest Honey

Weekly Market Briefs

This is National Pollinator Week and horticulturists at Iowa State University (ISU) are using it to promote the use of “prairie strips” planted among rows of corn and other crops.

Iowa State will be manning a honey booth at the June 25 Pollinator Fest in Ames where they will be selling Prairie STRIPS Honey, produced by the bees occupying test prairie strips at the ISU Horticulture Research Station located off the 35 in Story County.

The Prairie Science-based Trials of Rowcrops Integrated with Prairie Strips (STRIPS) project features alternating rows of native prairie grasses and other plants in fields of standard row crops. ISU said the strips produce healthy amounts of wildflowers that make them an ideal habitat for bees and butterflies that will pollinate the entire area.
