Biodiversity is the variety of life. What does this have to do with a farm? Agriculture that provides natural habitat can support pollination and pest control, protect water quality, meet the needs of multiple species, and make a meaningful contribution to wild Nature. On most farms, opportunities exist to accommodate the needs of local species with only minor changes to farming practices. Many farmers are already contributing to biodiversity by some of their activities. Besides covering practices that benefit farms and nature, this brochure helps farmers learn about rare and endangered species in their area.
