Ethiopia has a large variety of indigenous flora and fauna species. Ethiopia is the 4th and the 10th largest honey producer in Africa and all over the world respectively. Ethiopia is the owner of the highest number of bee colonies and produces surplus honey due to a variety of flora species exist in the country. From all the emerging small businesses, beekeeping is an important activity and the successful introduction that will arguably have the biggest impact on the entire community and make better livelihoods. Meanwhile, some anthropogenic and none technical problems, Ethiopia could not able to extend the modern beekeeping extension system athwart to the county. However, honey is still the only products that compete the European market and still the nation earns reasonable cash income, due to its organic products. Therefore, this book will have paramount important as a guide and would be necessary for a novice beekeeper through alleviating the existing problems. Again the book can be used a guide and very handy for an aspiring beekeeper that has no idea of how to start beekeeping and beekeeping management as a whole.
This book gives an over view of beekeeping sub-sector in Ethiopia. The topics covered in the book includes honey production and marketing in Ethiopia, actors within the honey value chain, honey value chain governance, honey value chain upgrading strategies, and opportunities and constraints for upgarding honey value chain. The book uses a value chain approach as conceptual and analytical framework. The book finally suggest areas of future policy intervention to improve the performance of the beekeeping sub-sector in Ethiopia in general and income of small-scale beekeepers in particular.
Beekeeping is an essential environmental contribution to the planet's Eco-systems. If bees are disappear, a host of crops would fail. Food shortages would follow. The humble honey bee helps to feed the world. There is a long tradition of beekeeping in north Ethiopia. It serves as sources of cash, food and medication for the rural community. Now day’s emphasis is given to improve the sub-sector by the GO’s and NGO’s in the country and as a result number of small holder farmers and investors are eager to involve in beekeeping. However, there was lack of knowledge in the performance of the existing honey bee colonies and opportunities and constraints of the production systems in different agro-ecologies. Hence, Girmay Murutse has conducted study on characterization of bee colonies in terms of their behavior and productivity and opportunities and constraints of beekeeping Production systems in highland, midland and lowland. He has recommended selection based bee colony multiplication and beekeeping productions in correspond to different agro-ecologies.
Beekeeping is the natural and cultural heritage for the rural people of Nepal. Commercial beekeeping is still in primary level in this country. Beekeeping is very much suitable for the poor people who have less or no land holding. This book therefore, provides information on enterprise scale wise profitability of honey production, cost, margin and price spread in the marketing of mellifera honey,and also tries to find out the factors affecting production of honey. This information should be useful to the professionals and policy makers who are working in the field of beekeeping, and marketing of hive products.
Beekeeping is environmentally and economically important farming that has been practiced in Ethiopia since time of immemorial. Recently, the Government and NGOs are trying to use it as a tool for poverty alleviation by providing modern beekeeping equipment. Therefore, this manuscript has explored the challenges and opportunities for promoting beekeeping in the highlands, midlands and lowland Agro-ecological zones (AEZ) of Northern Ethiopia. To do so, 120 beekeepers and 120 colony market actors were interviewed. Personal observations based on professional expertise were held at different apiaries and colony market centres. The results show that Traditional and modern beekeeping in the highlands, midlands and lowlands differ in many aspects. Although the district is suitable for beekeeping, many constraints are facing including application of chemicals, absconding, high prices of colonies and honey adulteration. In spite of its valuable contribution, colony marketing has been neglected. Hence, promotion of beekeeping should be based on the specific production system in each AEZ. Skill of beekeepers should be improved to improve queen rearing, colony marketing and honey yield.
The findings in this study depicts the delicate interaction of forest, bees and local communities under traditional forest management and beekeeping arrangements. This research in particular investigate the multiple benefits of the forest for beekeepers, both ecosystem service and goods, the diversities of beekeeping technology, the conservation attitude and behavior of beekeepers, the dynamics of the forest and beekeeping practices in the region, the various access and tenure arrangements to forest for beekeeping. It also explains how this interaction could contribute to sustain livelihood and conservation of the forest. Thus, the book can be helpful for development workers, researchers and students interested to work and study the interaction of forest and beekeeping particularly in sub-Saharan Africa context.
Despite the long tradition of beekeeping in Ethiopia, having the highest bee density and being the leading honey producer as well as one of the largest beeswax exporting countries in Africa, the share of the sub-sector in the GDP has never been commensurate with the huge numbers of honeybee colonies and the country's potentiality for beekeeping. Productivity is always low, leading to low utilization of hive products domestically, and relatively low export earnings. Thus, the beekeepers in particular and the country in general are not benefiting from the sub sector
In order to maintain productivity in the sector and for easy understanding, adopting new technology and all rounded information which in turn enlarges their readiness to produce more and thereby raises honey marketable supply, Wereda agriculture office and other apiculture development partners should give weight to practical supported beekeeping training which focused on pre and post harvest management of honey production and marketing. Establishing honey and beeswax collection centers in potential production areas and equipping them with the necessary facilities; encouraging and supporting the establishment of local-based small scale honey and beeswax processing, packing enterprises, particularly by women and the youth. For flourishing honey exports, creation of an attractive value scheme is important. Therefore, value expectations of the target market need to be known by creating closer relationship with potential buyers and this will help to understand the value demanded
Honey production is nowadays very popular among most of EU countries and broader. Furthermore, honey is a nearly complete and a unique food, which can only be produced by bees. In this paper we firstly provide a theoretical explanation of market supply and production process based on the analysis of domestic and foreign literature available and then we explore the market situation of the apiculture sector, more precisely, honey production in the EU from the economic aspects. The overall situation regarding EU production tends to increases with each passing day, and in the last few decades, the production of honey also. In this Bachelor thesis, we examine how the honey production within EU countries is affected by the economic crisis, various diseases and threats as well as technological advances and the importance of certain developed and developing EU countries. The EU is aware of significance of honey production and for that purpose focuses on the implementation of projects and programs. We believe that the work will be beneficial for the beekeeping public as it summarize the situation of honey production and confronts generally known hypothesis with reality.
Four initial level of colony strength: 4 frame (9,800), 6 frame (14,700), 8 frame (19,600) and 10 frame (24,500) adult honeybees per colony were tested for honey production and other colony attributes. The study revealed the exponential increase in honey yield producing 2.82, 1.59 and 1.18 times more honey from initially 10, 8 and 6 frame colonies than 4 frame colonies. The other colony attributes including comb building, brood rearing, syrup honey storage, bee bread storage and foraging activities were also positively correlated with initial colony strength. Another experiment testing three beekeeping packages namely, continuous brood rearing, initially brood-less and package bee colonies, for mite incidence and honey production indicated the delayed mite incidence in later two packages compared to continuous brood rearing colonies yielding 1.25 and 1.21 times more honey per colony, respectively. Training and social mobilization helped to aware beekeeping farmers to adopt modern beekeeping practices thereby improving annual honey yield and gross farm income from beekeeping enterprise.
The Government of Malawi has earmarked honey production as one of the potential income generating activities in the rural areas and this has been stipulated in government policy documents specifically the Malawi Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper and the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy. This study was, therefore, undertaken to evaluate the supply responsiveness of honey farmers to price and non-price factors by employing an Error Correction Model (ECM) that used annual time series data for the 1980 - 2010 period. The results of the study indicate that supply of honey in Malawi is positively influenced by its own price, amount of rainfall, beekeeping extension services and trend; and negatively by the cost of beehives. The study therefore recommended that the government should restrict honey imports, construct dams and promote irrigation in relatively dry areas, further increase its monetary allocation towards beekeeping activities, improve technologies in the honey sub-sector and subsidise the cost of beehives to make them affordable to honey producers thereby boosting honey production.

Ethiopia’s performance in attracting FDI is very poor compared to many African countries.At this juncture, identifying the determinants of FDI in Ethiopia is a key step to know the factors responsible for the poor performance of Ethiopia in attracting FDI.Unlike the other studies conducted in Ethiopia,this study further explores both analytically and empirically, the determinants of foreign direct investment in Ethiopia and its linkage to the growth of the country’s economy
In spite of the worldwide acknowledgment of apiculture as panacea to poverty, commercialization of beekeeping in Nigeria has not been appreciably exploited. The apparent low rate of investment is largely due to dearth of research work on apicultural management and as well as poor beekeeping skills of the people. This book determined the attitude of beekeepers towards beekeeping practices in South-western Nigeria; identified the apicultural skills involved in a successful beekeeping venture; assessed the beekeepers’ level of knowledge of beekeeping; documented the floral resources of honeybees in South-western Nigeria; appraised the ethno-medicinal and religio-cultural uses of honey and other bee products, and determined the physico-chemical and microbiological characteristics of honey from different retail outlets with a view to determining the quality of honey on sale in South-western Nigeria. This book will meet the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Apiculture as well as beekeepers. It will also challenge Research Entomologists to conduct further research on honeybees for higher productivity.
Agriculture in General and Crop production in particular is the back bone of Ethiopian economy.it contributes a greater share for the GDP as well as Employment creation. Currently Ethiopian Government adopt Agricultural Development Leads Industrialization (ADLI) policy ; agriculture will provide commodities for exports, domestic food supply and industries output; and encourage market for domestic manufacturers.The Agriculture sector, in Ethiopia,consists of different sub sectors. But, the crops sub sector accounts the lion share of Agricultural output.
