CRC Honey Bee Products

Decision support for Noongar hive migration


CRC for Honey Bee Products researchers helped the Noongar Land Enterprise Group, an Indigenous collective promoting commercially viable Noongar land-based businesses, to reliably produce ngooka, the Noongar word for honey. The decision-support tool allows NLE members to identify the flora used for their bees and the optimum yearly flowering times on each property. Optimum flowering time depends on the biology of the plant and the climatic conditions of that year.
