Michigan Pollinator Protection Plan

The purpose of Michigan’s Managed Pollinator Protection Plan (MP3) is to improve and protect the health of  pollinators in Michigan, while simultaneously protecting our crops, property, and human health. The MP3 is non-regulatory; it provides guidance. It is also designed to be flexible, and improves as we receive input from stakeholders, and new strategies become available.  

Recognizing that all states differ, it is crucial to tailor Michigan’s MP3 to fit individual situations and to encourage best management practices (BMPs) that are most applicable to our particular situation. There will be a system in place that will periodically review the efficacy of the MP3 and provide an outlet to amend it as necessary.

The Michigan Pollinator Protection Plan is led through Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). Visit MDARD's website for more information and updates.
