What problem does the tool address?:Beekeeping has so far occupied a special position in organic agriculture, as it is often carried out separately from the rest of agriculture. However, organic beekeeping is also subject to clear rules based on the principles of organic agriculture.
What solution does the tool offer?:In organic beekeeping, the goal is to use prudence and care to promote the health and vitality of bee colonies and minimize negative environmental impacts. The former requires expertise in the needs and natural behaviour of bees, good observation of colonies and careful work practices.
