The Associated Press - March 23, 2017

FARGO, N.D. - North Dakota was tops in the nation in honey production in 2016 for the 13th consecutive year.

The Agriculture Department says North Dakota producers with five or more colonies made 37.8 million pounds of honey last year, up 4 percent from the previous year.

The 485,000 honey-producing colonies in the state were down slightly, but average yield was up 4 pounds to 78 pounds per colony.

Prices for the 2016 crop averaged $1.73 per pound, down from $1.80 in 2015.
