Saving the bees in Poland – Importance of Honey-producing Insects for Humans and Environment
Languages of publication
Apiculture is an integral part of agriculture, and bees take the fourth place with regard to farm animals of economic importance. Their role in pollinating plants is significant: 60 species of farm plants rely on pollinating, as well as 140 garden plants, which is equal to 80 percent of plant species grown in Poland. Economists estimate that the income achieved thanks to the pollinating job of bees stands between 4.1 and 7.4 billion zlotys. That is why it is so important to support this very branch of agriculture. The NIK’s audit covered the activities of the government administration related to effective support for apiculture, and to the implementation of the objectives and tasks included in assistance programmes.
