Beekeeping is a very profitable business for today’s farmers. in this, a farmer can make lakhs of rupees slowly by starting initially with only 10 to 20 boxes of beekeeping. According to Narpinder Singh Dhaliwal, marginal or small farmers can start with 10 boxes with an expense of Rs. 30000 to Rs. 35000 rupees.
With proper handling and feeding, one can get at least 200 kg honey in one year and the market price of this honey is 300-400 rupees per kg. if you pack this honey yourself, cost comes around Rs. 25-30 for one kg packing. Therefore from 10 boxes of bees you can earn at least Rs.70000- Rs.80000
