Over 90,000 beehives will produce plum honey in September in Sagaing Region, said U Myo Tint, the head of the region’s beekeeping business.
“There are about 1,400 beehives belonging to the Sagaing Region beekeeping business and more than 90,000 beehives belonging to private businesses. We are preparing to start mass production of plum honey in September,” he said.
“Honey will be produced during the plum blossom season from September to November. Currently, the businesses are trying to increase the size of their colonies by touring the sesame fields in Shwebo, Wetlet, ChaungU, Sagaing, and Pale,” said U Myo Tint.
Pollen from sesame flowers has the highest protein, so queen bees mostly eat sesame pollen. The queen bees usually lay a large number of eggs in this season.
There are 313 private beekeepers in Sagaing Region, and beekeeping businesses are especially concentrated in Indaw Township. — Myo Win Tun (Monywa) (Translated by La Wonn)
