Part 6 of "Pollination Security for the Northeast" starts with Dr. Frank Drummond, University of Maine, interviewing graduate student Eric Asare. Eric's research project was focused on building models for blueberry farmers to predict how fluctuations in pollinators affect fruit set. In the second part, Aaron Hoshide interviews grower Paul Sweetland at Clary Hill, ME. They discuss some of the economic challenges facing growers such as renting honey bee and bumble bee hives and planting pasture strips to attract native pollinators.
