Abstract

In this paper, we explain honey production and marketing of the Marthandam Beekeepers Co-Operative Society in Kanniyakumari District. Honey is a sweet, liquid produced by honey bees from nectars and other sweet substances of plants by the addition of their digestive enzymes and by ripening the resulting mixture. The variety of honey produced by honey bees is the best known, due to its worldwide commercial production and human consumption. Data for the present study has been collected from primary sources of information. Hence, the Martandam Bee-keepers Co-operative Society, which faces production and marketing problems, should be rejuvenated and refurbished.
