Research activity on apiculture and all things related has continuously progressed alongside other ventures to understand various facets of bee biology. The success of beekeeping depends on the abundance of bee flora and several efforts have been made to learn more about plant species. This has been done for example through floral surveys using indigenous knowledge as the base. Also, bee diseases have been mapped out as well as gathering data on amongst others climate, hive parameters, habitat preferences and foraging speeds. And also, of course, information and knowledge about the local bee species themselves.

All this knowledge as well as AT advances and continuous development of value addition is being taught and put into practice in the multiple pieces of training that Keystone carry out both at the campus and in the villages.
