Honey bees has a symbiotic relationship with the flower. Honey bees account for more than 80% of pollination. Bees visits flowers to collect pollen and nectar as a food source and in return it transfers pollen from flower to flower.

Cross pollination makes the difference

Bees transfer the pollen from the male parts (anthers) of flowers to the female parts (stigmas), enabling fertilization and the production of fruits and seeds. By pollinating trees, bushes and herbaceous plants, the bees are important not only for the food production but also for all the other animals and birds in the forest ecosystem dependent on it for food berries, seeds and fruits.

Benefits to farmers

Honey bees helps farmers achieving higher productivity by cross pollinating the crops. Encouraging farmers to start beekeeping not only fosters sustainable farming practices but also yields significantly greater returns without the need for excessive reliance on chemical fertilizers or other resources.

Farmers will get higher yield when they start doing beekeeping in their farm which increases the process of cross-pollination. Income from farming will increase several times higher in comparing to the value of products like honey & beeswax obtained through beekeeping. Pollination is the most crucial benefit of honeybees and beekeeping, whereas hive products like honey and beeswax are secondary.

So start Beekeeping and get maximum return from your farm!
