Bees make honey: Beekeepers Make money
Trade to distant markets creates a flow of money to rural areas.
Pollination is necessary for all seed and fruit production. In some crops, it is the seed that is harvested for food, for example oilseed crops, nuts, legumes such as beans and peas, and cereals like rice and maize. In other crops, we eat the fruit that develops with the seed, for example citrus fruit and tomatoes. The importance of pollination is not always fully appreciated, although in some parts of the world the need for pollination has long been understood by farmers. Honey bee pollination has been proved to increase the seed or fruit yield of many crops.
