To address the concerns regarding insect pollinator populations in state of Jammu and Kashmir, we surveyed and interviewed local farmers to gain a better understanding of current farming practices and their effects on bee populations. We also consulted a number of apiary and agricultural experts during the research phase from 2012 till 2016. The final product may be concluded in this manuscript which describes various native and managed pollinator species and their habitat requirements. The paper further suggests best management practices that have the potential to help promote the growth and stability of these pollinator populations in Kashmir division of J &K, India.
