1970 ANNUAL SUMMARY--


Release:
SJanuary 19, 1971
3:00 P.M. EST

Honey production during 1970 totaled 234,791,000 pounds, 17 percent below
the 1969 crop, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This crop was produced
by 4,639, 000 colonies, 2 percent less than in 1969. With the exception of 1967
when numbers were up 1 percent, colony numbers have declined each year
since 1958. The yield of honey per colony was 50. 6 pounds, 9. 1 pounds lower
than the 1969 average. Production of beeswax in 1970 totaled 4, 648, 000 pounds,
15 percent less than was produced in 1969.

In mid-December, producers reported 54 million pounds of honey on hand
for sale compared with 67 million pounds a year earlier. Stocks in mid-Decem-
ber represented 23 percent of the 1970 honey production compared with 24
percent in 1969.

The honey flow in 1970 was generally poorer than in 1969. An exception was
the North Atlantic region where conditions were improved over 1969. Califor-
nia production dropped 66 percent, following an extremely favorable year in
1969 -- the largest decline from last year for any State.

The Nation's beekeepers received an average price of 17.4 cents per pound
for 1970 sales of all honey, the same as the 1969 average price for all honey.
These prices relate to all wholesale and retail sales of extracted, chunk, and
comb honey from apiaries owned by farmers and non-farmers.

Extracted honey in wholesale lots sold for an average price of 15. 3 cents
per pound, one-tenth cent higher than in 1969. Unprocessed bulk honey aver-
aged 14.2 cents per pound compared with 13. 6 cents a year earlier. Sales of
processed bulk honey averaged 16.1 cents per pound, nearly one cent lower
than 1969. Processed package sales averaged 25. 8 cents per pound compared
with 24. 0 cents a year earlier.

Prices received for retail sales of extracted honey averaged 32. 1 cents per
pound in 1970, one-half cent above 1969. Sales of all chunk honey averaged
