Dharamsala, September 13

Agriculture university at Palampur has decided to convert its historical bee research station at Nagrota Bagwan to a bee heritage farm.

The university has submitted a project of Rs 6.20 crore to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. Vice-Chancellor HK Chaudhary said he was hopeful that the project would be sanctioned soon so that work was initiated in the golden jubilee year of the statehood.

HK Chaudhary said the station was established in 1936 under the Department of Agriculture, Punjab. It is an important station for the information and technical knowhow for beekeeping and is the pioneer for introducing European honey bee in 1964. The heritage farm will be a role model for beekeeping and be equipped with all modern research and teaching facilities for the benefit of beekeepers, he said. — TNS
