The Apiculture Monitoring Report is compiled to ensure that MPI has a good understanding of emerging trends and issues facing the apiculture industry. This commentary was developed from information gathered through surveys completed by beekeepers, honey packers and exporters and augmented with a review of export documents, the apiary database and published reports. Honey production, price and expenses figures are based on a survey of a range of beekeeping enterprises that account for 40 to 50 percent of registered hives in New Zealand.
