Abstract:
An attempt is made in the present study to develop and standardize scale to analyze the perception of farmer-bee keepers towards bee keeping. The developed perception scale was found to be highly reliable (0.901) and valid (0.953). The perception scale consists of 21 statements classified as ecological and economic benefits/importance of rearing honey bees. The developed perception scale was administered to 32 farmers in Tumkuru district of Karnataka state during 2021-22. The results revealed that a vast majority of the farmer-bee keepers (75.00%) had good to better perception towards bee keeping, while one-fourth of the farmer-bee keepers had poor perception towards bee keeping.
