Now because of environmental pollution, degraded forest, land fragmentation, urbanization, use of chemical pesticides, unseen bee stress, overfeeding to bees, contaminated bee products, dearth period malnutrition, massive adulteration, it has become impossible to keep bees for authentic, qualitative and medicinal honey without special apiary site development. Access to land resources, bee forage development, bee breed improvement, registration, product quality testing, etc is extremely necessary for Nepal too.
Institutional Beekeeping like that of in NZ & ManukaLife
