'The Australian honey bee and pollination industry has about 1,800 commercial beekeepers. It is characterised by highly skilled individuals who are more than 65 years of age, with a deep understanding of honey bee husbandry, ecology, and the flowering patterns of Australian native forests.'

Bushfire Recovery Plan, Michael Clarke (AHBIC & Agrifutures Australia)


Publications and reports published by peak industry bodies such as Agrifutures Australia, the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council and other research institutions provide valuable strategic insights into the sustainability of the honey bee and pollination industry in Australia.


In this section of the Learning Hive Library are links to reports, articles and research papers that have been published by peak industry bodies, government agencies and research institutions that are of interest to beekeepers.
