and many of them will want to take something home with them. preferably not made in china. these workers in central england are busy hand making and decorating thousands of commemorative mugs for the big event. we. enjoy and and kind of want to join in with the monkey state just that little emma bridgewater opened her company in one thousand nine hundred five and has produced commemorative articles from the beginning. her workers made moves for queen elizabeth's diamond jubilee and the wedding of harry's brother prince william to kate middleton. bridgewater hope spiers appreciate the craftsmanship. of. specialness that you can get it right.

for. to start work on something that's normally taken care of by nature the farmer pollinates her trees by hand it should be these doing this work but here in the honey one region of southwest china there simply aren't enough of the beneficial insects to go around. does not mean our yields were simply too low the trees were flowering well but only produced a few fruit seed at the heart then we heard about hand pollination we checked it out and then started doing it ourselves. hand pollination is a painstaking task first farmers have to find flowers which have only just opened the pollen dust has to be fresh and clean and removed very carefully. and her husband. colony each tree three times. nowadays it's really hard work being a fruit grower. we have to spend
a lot of time tending our trees that the. global be populations are on the decline and china is especially badly affected most regions no longer have any need a variety is the main problem is the widespread use of chemicals in the district capital cinci farmers come to junk stores to stock up on fertilizers herbicides and insecticides. you want to tell farmers not to spray during the flowering period because then the bees won't go on the blossoms. at all other times though the farmers happily spray away on average chinese farmers use twice as many pesticides as their european counterparts meanwhile the keeping has become a profitable business here. leases his bees to local farmers on a daily basis he charges five euros per hive per day. when a famous pole. why they only roughly distribute the pollen on the blossom like bees
