Pollen Monitoring Network Study

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, with assistance from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, started the Pollen Monitoring Network in 2015, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan. This was to measure changes in pesticide (neonicotinoid insecticide, insecticide and fungicide) concentrations following restrictions on the use of neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seeds.

The data contains measurements of pesticide (neonicotinoid insecticide, insecticide and fungicide) concentrations in pollen samples collected from honeybee yards in Ontario.
