Interest in beekeeping surges in Badakhshan

Officials at Agriculture Department of Badakhshan say that beekeeping has flourished in the past few years and a lot of people in the province are keeping bees and producing honey.

Mohammad Aalim Alimi, Agriculture Director of Badakhshan says that in areas where ground is set for keeping bees, scores of people have started keeping them.

Mr. Alimi also says that due to its unique quality, Badakhshan’s honey has a good reputation in the market. 

In the meantime, some beekeepers in the province say they need local government’s cooperation to bring progress in their work.

Mubariz Sahi has been keeping bees for two years and he annually produces hundreds of kilograms of honey through his farm.

Mr. Sahi says beekeepers have advertising problems and they cannot sell their products properly.
