Beekeeping / Apiculture as fifth important input for overall development of Agriculture in a sustainable manner.

  • The main Inputs required for Agriculture are:

  • Land

  • Labour

  • Capital and

  • Management

  • Adoption of Apiculture is also required as fifth (5th) Input to get higher yields and quality production in cross pollinated Agricultural and Horticultural crops.

  • The efficacy of other four inputs used in Agriculture, in some crops, is directly related to this input.



Area under insect pollinated major crops in the country average of 6 years 2001 02 to 2006 07
Area under insect-pollinated major crops in the country( average of 6 years- 2001-02 to 2006-07)


Constraints in beekeeping
Constraints in Beekeeping average of 6 years- 2001-02 to 2006-07)

1). Lack of the following:

  • Awareness about yield increase in crops by BK through pollination;

  • Adequate laboratories for disease prevention, control & analysis and quality testing of products;

  • Institutional support for beekeeping in terms of bank loans, etc;

  • Indiscriminate use of insecticides, pesticides, weedicides etc.;

    3. A non-traditional newly introduced industry;

    4.Tribals and illiterates from forests and remote rural areas are generally involved;

  • Flowering of plants and secretion of nectar and production of pollen – sole food of honeybees, is influenced by climatic conditions;

  • The behaviour and life cycle of honeybees depend completely on climatic and floristic conditions, which vary from place to place; and

  • Poor quality control for production of honey.
