A study by the United Nations Programme of support for the Environment indicates that the increase in the quantity and diversity of pollinating insects in plantation areas is a cheap and sustainable strategy to improve the yield of various agricultural crops. Results were published in an article in the magazine, Science.

The survey was conducted in 344 areas of Africa, Asia and Latin America, covering 33 types of crops. Data analysis showed that in small areas, the growth in the number of pollinators leads to a steady increase in productivity. And in larger fields, the benefits were only detected when species diversity was high.
