The Bashkir scientific-research center for bee-keeping and apitherapy purchased the unique equipment in France, having no analogues not only in the Republic but in Russia too. As the head of the center Amir Ishemgulov reported, the center has conducted the scientific investigations for exposure of the intensive technology for the breeding of the female bees of the Bashkir nectariferous breed in 2009. For the tests they used the equipment, made in Russia, Germany and France. The French equipment turned out to be the most efficient for work with the bees of the Bashkir breed.

The center has acquired the new equipment in April. For one season the specialists will be able to receive more than 12 thousand female bees of the Bashkir breed – four times more than in the previous years. Only two thousand female bees have been obtained in 2009 and these bees face high demand among the Bashkir bee-keepers.

The new equipment allows preserving and increasing the number of the bees of the Bashkir breed. The specialists hope to receive the first results already this year.
