KABUL, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- Farmers and bee owners have collected more than 50 tons of honey in Afghanistan's northern Baghlan province, the state-run news agency Bakhtar reported Wednesday.

The major part of the natural treasure has been collected from the central Baghlan-e-Markazi district, the news agency said.

With flower gardens and jungles, the central Baghlan-e-Markazi district is suitable for developing the beekeeping industry in Afghanistan's northern region, Bakhtar said.

The beekeeping industry has been growing in the war-torn Afghanistan over the past several years and, according to officials, thousands of tons of honey are collected annually in the country.
