Apiculture refers to artificial breeding of bees in man made hives. I recently visited an apiculture centre in Pune where bees are kept in artificial bee hives and honey and beeswax is being extracted from them. Moreover, these bees help in pollination so that crops can be grown. Location where bees are kept is called apiary. Trained beekeepers are always there to take care of bees and beehives. This is very profitable business as on one side bees are kept from which honey and beeswax are extracted and on other side these bees help in pollination. So a person can do both apiculture as well as farming side by side.
