Arshad Hussain Zafri, Vinod Kumari, Shashi Meena, Rakesh Kumar Lata

Pollination by animals play important role in the production and quality of grown crops. Honey bees can be used for this purpose by farmers to gain dual benefits by apiculture and agriculture, as honey bees are the best-known pollinator. For this purpose, information from available literature must be combined to tabulate plant species that can be grown by farmers with honey bee culture. Total 53 research articles review papers and web-references related to honey bee diversity and their pollinated plants at the International, National, and State level, from duration 1990-2020 were explored to prepare a reference library for apiculturists that can be utilized in agricultural productions. Different plants like Mango, Litchi, Citrus, Papaya, Guava, Banana, Pomegranate, Ber, Custard apple, Apple, Almonds, Eggplant, Cucumber, Onion, Mustard, Groundnut, etc. are pollinated by honey bees. The government of India and various agencies provide funds to increase apiculture, this information must reach local farmers so that they can use their land for the sweet revolution with the green revolution at the same time.
