Pune, January 9, 2010 (sources: The Daily Raising Kashmir news dated May 21, 2009 via Press report of Bioland-Imkerei Honighäuschen auf dem Brüser Berg dated May 10, 2009 and Apinews dated May 26, 2009; Institute of International Trade Spotlight News dated May 12, 2009): Jammu and Kashmir is one of the important honey producing states of India. The State is reported to have some 20,000 bee colonies (now mostly of Apis mellifera) kept by 200 beekeepers and producing about 300 metric tons of honey. As much as 90 per cent of the honey is said to come from nectar of false acacia (Robinia psuedoacacia) and the remaining from wild flowers. Being free from pesticides and other chemicals, honey from the State is much valued. The beekeepers of the State therefore are peeved at the use of the term 'Kashmir honey' by some exporters for the produce from other States of the country. Following news in this regard is reproduced, with editorial corrections, from the report by Baba Umar on May 10, 2009 in the Daily Raising Kashmir.
