Standardization of floral mapping for migratory bee keeping
Queen bee breeding for selection of Thai Sac Brood Virus resistant stocks in Indian bees
Assessment of pollinator’s diversity on different flora and estimation of pollen load transfer by individual pollinator fauna
Maintenance of Indian bee colonies, Apis cerana indica and introduction of Italian bee A. mellifera and study of their performance are the major areas of research in this unit. Intensive studies are being undertaken on the colonisation of stringless bees and their usefulness as pollinators for increasing the agricultural production. A bee park has been established with four species of honeybees.
