Commercial Pollination in Kenya

The business of bee keeping is not only about honey production, bees can be used to pollinate commercial crops, whereby the beekeeper is contracted to place well stocked beehives next to field crops.

This system of commercial pollination is practised in the developed countries where large fields of crops are grown and bees are used to pollinate the crop so as to increase production and quality.

African Bee Keepers Ltd has recently secured a pollination contract on a commercial raspberry plantation in the Nanyuki area of Kenya. The contact runs for the period that the raspberries will be in flowering.

African Bee Keepers have placed 150 well stocked Langstroth bee hives in 7 locations of the raspberry plantation, the bee hives are placed close to the raspberry field in clusters that are enclosed with shade netting fence that are 10 feet high so that the bees fly from the bee hives and over the fence so that they do not interfere with field workers.
