Honey Bee - Architect of Green and Sweet Revolution
This video film highlights importance of beekeeping for sustainable development of agriculture, horticulture and forests. Honey bee is one of the prime biological resources in a bio-village development programme. The scientific monitoring of beekeeping activity is uncommon in rural India and therefore public awareness appears necessary. The film encompasses bio-behavioural characteristics of bee species and their importance in crop productivity. The skill of hunting of Apis cerana for its domestication is demonstrated which is exciting one and full of surprise. The selection of unnatural nesting sites like telephone poles and water closets by Apis cerana throws lights on exploitation of nature by man. This video film will be able to communicate role of bee farming for integrated rural development.
