In order to help the apiculturists or honeybee farmers, a mobile application has been developed by ‘Madhusree Honey Farm’ headquartered at Alakode in Kannur. The app is named as ‘Bee Keeper’s Diary’ and is one of the first mobile apps to help bee farmers.
The app offers facilities to record the timely maintenance of different varieties of honeybees such as giant honeybee, stingless honeybee or dwarf honeybee and Italian honeybee, number and division of beehives, amount of honey collected annually, income and expenses of honeybee farming and similar details.
‘Bee Keeper’s Diary’ can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
In order to know how to use the app, you can watch this video in YouTube.
