Deadline of October 1 Set for Comments on Oklahoma Pollinator Plan

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 11:34:32 CDT

Deadline of October 1 Set for Comments on Oklahoma Pollinator Plan A deadline of Oct. 1, 2015 has been set for public comments on the proposed pollinator plan, according to Kenny Naylor, Director of Consumer Protection Services for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODAFF).


Before that deadline, the fourth and final regional public hearing will be held in Hugo to gain input on the proposed pollinator plan. The public hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m., Sept. 23 at the Kiamichi Technology Center, North Seminar Room, 107 S. 15th St., Hugo.


About 80 people gathered for a public hearing held Aug. 11 at Langston University’s campus in Oklahoma City. That was followed by the regional meetings. The first three were: Aug. 26 in Enid, Sept. 2 in Lawton and Sept. 9 in Tulsa.


Pollinators are essential to agriculture in Oklahoma. They are responsible for the success of many of the state’s crops like canola, sesame and watermelons. Native pollinators are also necessary for many native plants like redbud, Oklahoma’s state tree, and Chickasaw plum.


The Oklahoma Managed Pollinator Protection Plan (OKMP3) is being developed in response to a growing need for a balanced public policy that mitigates risk to pollinator species, while minimizing the impact of that mitigation on production agriculture, according to ODAFF.


Oklahoma’s MP3 is a multifaceted plan involving multiple stakeholders.


A draft pollinator plan is posted on ODAFF’s website at www.ag.ok.gov .


Comments can be submitted to Naylor at kenny.naylor@ag.ok.gov .


A group will be formed with stakeholders to address changes to the plan.
