Scientific Beekeeping refers to the systematic and knowledge-based approach to managing honey bee colonies for the purpose of beekeeping. It involves the application of scientific principles and techniques to enhance honey production, ensure the health and welfare of bees, and promote sustainable beekeeping practices. Scientific beekeeping empowers beekeepers with knowledge and tools to enhance colony health, honey production, and ecological sustainability in the beekeeping industry.

APRINS has recognized the significance of scientific beekeeping and has taken several proactive steps to promote and support it in the northeastern states of India.

One of the notable initiatives undertaken by APRINS is the formation of Honey Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) in various northeastern states. These FPOs aim to create a platform for beekeepers to come together, collaborate, and collectively work towards improving honey production, quality, and market access. The FPOs provide a means for beekeepers to access training, resources, and marketing support, thereby enhancing their economic prospects and promoting sustainable beekeeping practices.

APRINS has also played a crucial role in providing training programs on honey processing and scientific beekeeping. These training sessions equip beekeepers with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively manage their bee colonies, improve honey extraction and processing techniques, and adopt best practices in beekeeping. These efforts have not only improved the livelihoods of beekeepers but also fostered environmental stewardship and sustainable beekeeping practices in the region.
