Roundtable Argument between Bee keeper, Honey lovers and an Economist in the jungle

A heated argument between a bee keeper, honey lovers and an economist. Economist::. Is this what makes honey so expensive? I mean it is locally made and nature feeds bees..why must a litre b be at 22k sincerely? Honey lover 1:. I buy 5 litres at 100k, so I think that price is fair Honey lover 2: It requires a lot to have such a quality honey. Bee farming is not as easy as you think, it goes through a lot of processes which involves spending and production is done within a time frame that is not constant. These among other reasons have contributed to the high price. Economist:   That is 20k per litre. Still expensive. Milk production requires far more input in terms of labour and financial resources, and lots of land.  A litre of processed milk is 3000 ug shs. Honey lover 1: ```22k is even cheap, ask a person where they're exporting it how much a kg of pure honey goes for! Once nature is interrupted the entire ecosystem will get distorted, bees l

Caliandra calothyrus is a non-thorny fertilizer tree which belongs to family leguminaceae. It is characterized by having deep roots, compound bi-pinnate leaf type and pink flowers. It was introduced in tropical countries like Uganda from Mexico and South America. It grows in a wide range of climatical conditions and soil types of acidic state, water logged areas but the presence of frost can affect it so greatly. It is a relatively fast growing tree and yields faster benefits in the first year after planting. The tree can produce fodder continuously for more than ten years It's benefitial to grow caliandra because of the vital roles it plays with in an ecosystem including: Provide high quality fodder supplements for livestock. Caliandra leaves can be harvested and fed to live stock to improve milk production of both dairy cattle and goats. It can also be fed to other types of live stock such as sheep, rabbits, and chicken.

We must act therefore to curb our usage if we can. Today volunteers from Uganda Youth Biodiversity Network together with other youth groups in Uganda passionate about their Environmet merged together to demand the industries to act on release of Plastics, companiesin Uganda  involved plastics production included Mukwano plastics, Coca cola , century bottlers, nice plastics, nile plastics ,Mec plastics, lunco, crest tanks plastics, Ak plastics, Genetex plastic,suda plastics, Tik plastics, among many.

The Role of Bees and other pollinators in Increasing Horticultural Production

Image
Everyone knowsabout the bees, and there are some 20 000 species of wild bees that pollinate plants but it may come as a surprise to know that moths, flies, wasps, beetles and butterflies as well as some animals pollinate plants. Vertebrate. pollinators include bats, non-flying mammals, including several species of monkey, sunbirds, honeycreepers and some parrot species.   The abundance and diversity of pollinators ensures the sustained provision of pollination services to multiple types of plants and leads to better food. POLLINATORS, INVISIBLE TO THE EYE BUT YIELDING GREAT RETURNS IN HORTICULTURE Pollination is the highest Horticulture contributor to yields worldwide, contributing far beyond any other Horticultural management practice. Thus, bees and other pollinators make important contributions to Horticulture. Pollinators affect 35 percent of global Horticultural land, supporting the production of 87 of the leading food crops worldwide. Plus, pollination-depe
