This video emphasizes the importance of pollinators as pollination vectors in crops. Agriculture has expanded rapidly over the last decades to meet the demographic expectations of humanity. But this is causing a landscape uniformity with the problems of pests, low productivity and loss of biodiversity that this practice has associated. Paradoxically, this homogenization of the landscape is also affecting the quality of pollination services required by crops. Sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices will undoubtedly result in a benefit for all.
