Abstract:
Beekeeping is important for securing food, poverty reduction, health, environmental protection and plant pollination. Apiculture is challenged by many biotic and abiotic factors in recent years. These factors affect honeybees and their valuable products either together or alone. The demand of honey has increased especially in Kerala during COVID-19 as people got more aware about its wide variety of uses and importance. Honey marketing is in unorganized sector and there is a great potential for exporting. It is a specialized field and best left to professional. Pathanamthitta district of Kerala was selected for the study. The survey was taken from 60 respondents from 5 villages. The study was conducted in the year 2021-2022 years. This review paper examined the constraints faced by the beekeepers while producing and marketing of the honey which revealed that unavailability of skilled labours during production and lower price of honey in marketing are the major constraints expressed by the beekeepers.
