Think about the last plate of food you ate. Chances are, one out of every three bites you took was made possible because of a pollinator, like the honey bee. These small insects have a big responsibility – pollinating the fruits, vegetables and nuts we enjoy every day.

Explore what Monsanto is doing to research and support the health of these precious insects – and the contributions they make to sustainable agriculture.
