Honey production revival

Felix Chaudhary
Thursday, December 06, 2012

BEEkeepers in Ba have regrouped and formed a new organisation in a bid to revitalise interest in the business and to identify ways of increasing production.

The revamped Ba Beekeepers Association attracted 40 participants at an inaugural workshop held at social worker Salochna Sharma's Vaqia residence.

"We decided to get together and see how we can help raise more interest from farmers or people interested in bee-keeping and honey production," Ms Sharma said.

"We also learnt a lot of new techniques from Karishma Devi from the Agriculture Department who facilitated the workshop.

She taught us how to construct boxes to house the hives and gave us a lot of useful practical and theoretical information."

Ms Sharma said more workshops would be held over the coming weeks to increase knowledge and skills in bee-keeping.
