Midwest Pollinator Plus


The Midwest Pollinator Mix was designed to meet the PFQF High Quality Habitat Standard and provide excellent cover for upland wildlife and habitat for pollinators.  It was not designed to meet any particular state NRCS standard.  Customers who are participating in a Federal Conservation Program like CP42 must instead purchase one of the state specific mixes designed to meet the appropriate standard
