An Economic Valuation of Pollination Services in Georgia


  • Barfield, Ashley
  • Bergstrom, John C.
  • Ferreira, Susana


The production of many crops depends on biotic pollination. As pollinator populations decline, assessments of the potential consequential loss of economic value are critical. We estimate the economic value of pollination services ($608 million), crop vulnerability ratio (21 percent), and pollination’s contribution to agricultural production value (5 percent) for Georgia.
