Integrating beekeeping with cashew farming to support farming livelihoods in Ghana

Keeping bees in cashew orchards can increase the yield of cashew nuts due to pollination. Working with our new partner in Ghana we are helping some of the poorest farming families to integrate beekeeping with cashew farming – to give the double benefit of honey to sell and increased cashew nut yields.

We are approaching this challenge in two ways:

  • Training cashew farmers in beekeeping and helping them get started. This involves a comprehensive training programme, with follow-on support, and an input package.
  • Working with beekeepers with little land of their own and helping them enter into land and crop-sharing arrangements with cashew farmers. They place their hives in the cashew orchards in return for the pollination services of their bees.

This Project is managed by Bees for Development and Bees for Development Ghana
