Author(s): Raj Kumar, SR Singh, SB Mokhopadhyay and Yamuna Prasad Singh
Abstract: Beekeeping is an ecologically sound, economically and socially acceptable enterprise. Delineation of constraint under transfer of technology (TOT) constraints responsible in adoption in the recommended technologies ultimately will help the research and extension system to strengthen the efforts and bridge between technology transfer and adoption. The objectives of the study were to analyze the transfer of technology constraints of the beekeepers and identify the TOT constraints faced by the beekeepers in communication of beekeepers. The study was conducted at Muzaffarpur, Vaishali and Samastipur districts of Bihar, because the State of Bihar is endowed with highly diversified and about bees-flora and favourable ecological conditions. Bihar is one of the largest producers, consumers and exporters of Litchi honey. Ninety percent of Litchi orchards of the country are located in Bihar State alone. Hence, the State is considered to be paradise of honey bees. The most important transfer of technology were low price of honey, lack of genetically superior bee queen, assured credit facility, non-availability of assured market and good quality inputs, lack of regular technical guidance for beekeepers are the major constraints as perceived by the respondent beekeepers.
