Mendefera, 30 October 2013 – Agricultural farmers in the Southern region said that wood enclosures have made visible impact as regards raising honey production in connection with the flourishing of flowering trees within.

They further explained that beekeeping ventures have been prone to area and seasonal limits, thus giving rise to narrow profit margin. The current prospect has encouraged widespread introduction of modern apicultural techniques, the farmers added.

Among the farmers, Mr. Musie Embaye and Mr. Yosef Woldai noted the importance of apiary mobility to areas of better nectar potential and pleasant weather setting pertaining to raising honey harvest. Pointing out that the growing agricultural potential in enclosures has ensured an option for settled farming thanks to the itinerant mode, they disclosed that they are in a position to attain a more-than-30-Kg harvest from a hive.

Accordingly, the domain of farming remains to be the most unexploited potential in the country.

Reports by the Administration of the Southern region indicate that there exist more than 14,000 domestic bee colonies in the region.
