Over recent years some regions of the world have been suffering from an increase in losses of their managed honey bee colonies. Colony losses are not unusual, but the increases in losses reported in some Asian countries have received considerable attention, not least because of the honey bees’ role in pollination and the absence of an easily identifiable cause. A number of different factors are considered to be involved and are now being monitored and investigated further such as pests and diseases, bee management, including bee keeping practices and breeding, the environment, including weather, agricultural practices and the use of pesticides and the availability and quality of food sources. Increased monitoring and research are starting to shed some light on the factors involved in recent honey bee colony losses. Aim of this is to Evaluate factors that affecting factors that affecting honey bee productivity. This report focuses on the emerging view that reducing of feed (reduction of flowers), less area facilities, bad climate, security situations, unless of equipments, weak management, lack of technical knowledge in beekeeping, high costs of honey, low economic condition of the country, reactions of the people against bee farms, bad policy of the country, pest and diseases are the key underlying factors which are affected honey bee productivity in Nangarhar, Afghanistan.
