Ishita Mishra and Kiran RanaAbstract:
India ranks first in terms of number of beehive stocks and eighth in terms of honey production. The major reason for this difference may be the farmers not aware about various modern day beehive management and production technologies. Nainital district of Uttarakhand was purposively selected for the study as it accounts for the maximum number of beekeepers among all the districts in the Kumaon Hills. Nainital district has eight blocks, out of which Bhimtal block was selected purposively for the study as it has maximum honey production. Top four honey producing villages Jeoli, Gaga, Bhaluti and Chopra were selected purposively from the Bhimtal block. A total 76 respondents were selected by censes method from the four villages having a minimum of five year of experience and minimum number of ten boxes. The findings of the study reflect that a majority of the farmers (68.42%) had medium extent of adoption of recommended beekeeping practices. Extension personnel and agriculture scientist might have enhanced honey production through regular visit, training and guidance to farmers.Pages: 417-419 | Views: 90 | Downloads: 3Download Full Article: Click Here
