    Pic of a very determined looking young man and what looks to be a 20 frame hand crank radial extractor with about 100 hives in the background! :thumbsup:

    thanks for the pictures. I would guess that everything is done in the field and the extractor has a net or tent over the top to keep out the robbers??? in some places here (most especially in Canada and the Dakotas) mustard and canola are pretty much the same thing. we have a lot of wild mustard here in the early spring and it produces a lot of bees but is so early I don't know if anyone has ever collected any nectar from this source. I myself value it as a excellent source of pollen and nectar for building a lot of bees and ultimately queens.

    wishing you a good harvest and a safe trip back in the other direction....

    Now it 's up! :thumbsup:
    Great pictures!
    I wish I had discovered my passion for honey bees as early in life as you Ajaz. And to be doing it on such a huge level at your age is remarkable!

    Great pollen for breeding.


    nectar is more in mustard.

    Nectar HAS more moisture in it

    THEREfore works excellent
    For breeding

    Ajaz, does your season always start this early in the year?
    That screen tent is a terrific idea to make working in the open field possible. It sure makes things a lot more efficient by saving transporting the hives back and forth from the apiary.
    How do things work with moving your hives from one place to another---do you contract with different farmers for pollination services? Do they pay you? Is there any government involvement/control associated with migrant beekeeping? Do you stay with the hives or do you travel back and forth? The more I think about it, the more questions come to my mind.
    Maybe you should write an article about beekeeping in India. For sure, I'm not the only one who would be interested in reading about it.
    Thanks as well for the pictures, but I too had problems with seeing some of them. Only some uploaded.
