On-farm insectaries are areas of flowering plants that attract and maintain beneficial insect populations by providing shelter from highly disturbed crop areas as well as alternative food sources, namely pollen and nectar.

The goal of on-farm insectaries is to enhance diversity and abundance of beneficial insects on your farm to build resilience, particularly against seasonal variations and pest incursions.

Join VegNET Victoria (Northern, Western and South-Eastern) for a webinar from 12noon-1pm AEST on Thursday 2 September to learn more about on-farm insectaries and how to get started, including the benefits of planting native vegetation.
