Challenges Faced by Pollinators in Sustainable Coffee Farming
Unfortunately, essential pollinators confront numerous challenges in modern agricultural landscapes, including:
A. Habitat Loss
Intensive farming practices and urbanization have led to the destruction of natural habitats, leaving pollinators with limited foraging and nesting opportunities.
B. Pesticide Use
The widespread use of synthetic pesticides in conventional agriculture has devastating effects on pollinators. Pesticides harm these creatures directly and disrupt their navigation and foraging behaviors, leading to reduced pollination rates.
