This research aims to analyze how agroforestry takes part significantly to preserve the availability sustainability of beeforage. The research is carried out in Ulang Village, Loksado Sub-district, Hulu Sungai Selatan Regency. The observation is held on toward some rubber plants cultivated in the agroforestry area where many beehives of Apis dorsata found there. The sampling data collected are all kinds of flowerous plants, flowering period, and types of plants. As a result, researcher found there were 13 kinds of flowerous trees which become beeforage. Beeforage is obtained from cultivated and natural plants. September, October, and November are the periods when almost plants are flowering. However, there will be a famine of flower in March, April and May.
