The Institute for Apiculture Celle is an expertise centre for all matters of apiculture as well as related areas such as plant protection and agriculture. In the apiculture institute there are ten female workers and 16 male workers employed, as well as eight trainees, in the areas of bee-keeping, lab work and administration.
Due to its work in the areas of advanced training, research and development, extending beyond its own region, the Institute for Apiculture has gained international recognition. Honey bees are of great ecological and economic importance because of their pollination. To ensure pollination in all areas, it is necessary that bee colonies and of course apiarists are evenly spread in the areas.
The Apiculture Institute, by working in the areas of:
- schools for apiarists in and beyond the region
- courses for further advanced training
- disease diagnostics
- testing of honey
- testing of pesticides
- research and development
lends support to bee-keeping, so that the bee colonies even in problematical situations, can operate optimally and adeptly. Raising an awareness of the significance of bee-keeping is a focal point in public relations work.
