Certificate in Beekeeping CIB ++

There is always an increasing demand for honey across the world. Most of the honey is being collected from the wild resources (forest) and a limited population is engaged to rear the bees. Due to less technical knowledge and poor infrastructure, honey production is less. Great potential exists in this area when this unorganized sector can be established into an organized one for the betterment of society. At the village level, successful honey production provides nutritional and economic security and also empowerment to the farmers, farm women, and rural youth. Beekeeping also helps conserve natural resources. There is a need to
impart improved technical knowhow to the traditional beekeepers in order to facilitate the adoption of improved technologies available in this area. The certification may be required to the beekeeper to seek any financial help from any bank, non-governmental agencies, etc.

  • impart education about modern beekeeping.
