Development of beekeeping with Apis mellifera L. in India: present status and future scope






Indian Bee Journal 56(3/4): 127-131

Development of beekeeping with Apis mellifera L. in India: present status and future scope

In the early 1990s in India there were over 956 700 Apis cerana colonies (in hives) and 100 000 A. mellifera colonies. The distribution of each species is given, and overall honey yields are compared (6.67 vs. 13.7 kg/colony). A honey production target, set in 1976, for the year 2000, was based only on A. cerana, but the target can be increased if A. mellifera beekeeping is developed further in areas where A. cerana is not presently used for honey production.
