The Effects of Propolis Production Methods and Honeybee Genotypes on Propolis Yield

Nuray Sahinler and Aziz Gul

Abstract:
The effects of propolis production methods and the honeybee genotypes were investigated in this study. Honeybee genotypes were as the Caucasica (Apis mellifera caucasica), Carniolan (Apis mellifera carnica), Italian (Apis mellifera ligustica) and Anatolia (Apis mellifera anatoliaca). Propolis harvesting was repeated 4 times every 15-day interval during 1 October-30 November 2004. Average propolis yield in Caucasica (Apis mellifera caucasica), Carniolan (Apis mellifera carnica), Italian (Apis mellifera ligustica) and Anatolia (Apis mellifera anatoliaca) bee genotypes were found as 27.34, 26.93, 26.12, 39.67 g, respectively. Propolis productions Anatolia genotype was about 23.25, 25.45 and 82.47%, higher than those of Caucasica, Carniolan and Italian genotype, respectively. Anatolia bees were found to be more suitable propolis production than the other bee genotypes under the experimental conditions.
