Pheasants Forever Nebraska

Panhandle: Pollinator Habitat

$83.00 per acre

This pollinator habitat mix, designed for the Nebraska Panhandle region, has 26 wildflower and legume species to provide season-long blooms. Flowering plants provide pollinating insects with larval host plants, protein-rich pollen, and nectar. Conservation efforts for pollinators can also be a win-win situation for pheasants, quail, grassland songbirds, and other wildlife that utilize the same habitat.

*Please note that the species composition and price are subject to change depending on availability. Species substitutions may be needed at time of order. Seed mix updated 4/4/2019.

A note about wildflower and pollinator seed mixes

The establishment of a wildflower, prairie, or pollinator seed mix depends on two critical elements: time and management. Many of the wildflower species listed in these mixtures will take several years to show up…be patient. In addition, the natural process of plant succession means that you’ll need to manage the stand to keep it looking diverse and colorful in the future. Otherwise, grasses tend to dominate the community. Every two years, plan to manage your habitat by applying some form of management like prescribed burning, herbicide application, light disking, managed grazing or haying.
