BEE'S BUDDY / PASSION / FRIM

A collaboration project between USM Academia, Dr. Zulkifli bin Mustafa and FRIM in developing sustainable farms in all FRIM areas including FRIM Kepong, Grik and Cameron Highland. This joint venture involves kelulut beekeeping training for FRIM officers including how to manage the farm and learning about honey harvesting techniques. This project is proposed to solve the problem of infertility of trees in man-made forests in FRIM, Kepong, where the trees do not produce fertile seeds for the addition of new seedlings there. This is because it is known that bees, including stingless bees, are one of the pollinating agents in the forest.
