Bie: Agricultural sector ensures training for beekeepers in province

Marcolino Rocha Sandemba, director of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries, told ANGOP on Monday that beekeepers will be selected in the municipalities of Cuito, Cuemba, Camacupa, Chitembo, Andulo and NhArea.

The initiative will enable beekeepers to improve their techniques of honey production and handling of modern equipment acquired by the government of Bie province.

For example, he added, traditional materials held by beekeepers have the capacity to produce six kilograms of honey during one season, while modern equipment produces 60 kilograms per season.

The agricultural sector controls over five thousand traditional beekeepers.
