Often their natural habitats have been removed and in the periods when crops are not blooming, bees suffer from lack of nutrition.

From knowing the best foods to enhance a bee’s immune system through to understanding the competitive nature of different bee species, farmers are turning to pollination experts to maximise their crop yields.
