of bee colonies:
disillusioned with Apis mellifera beekeeping in Kangra Valley in 1982,
due to its decreasing honey yield. To this fear and also to studt the impact of
inbreeding on honey yield in Apis mellifera , a honeybee migration
project was undertaken. In 1982,a unit of 50 Apis mellifera colonies were
migrated to NDRI Karnal. Honey weighing 1565 Kg was extracted from 45 colonies
in spring season alone. Average honey yield was 35 Kg/colony and maximum was 45
Kg. Results of this project disseminated to beekeepers of Kangra Valley. Now,
they are regularly undertaking migration of Apis mellifera colonies to
the plains and earning lakhs of rupees.
