Rubber Board Call Centre to answer queries on beekeeping
Kottayam, 24 October
Rubber growers can contact Rubber Board Call Centre to know more about beekeeping in rubber plantations. Mr. Biju Joseph, bee keeping trainer associated with Rubber Training Institute and a member of Palakkad Rubber Producers’ Society, Meenachil, Pala will answer the questions on the subject on 26 October 2016 from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. The Call Centre Number is 0481 – 2576622.
Rubber plantations are a good source of honey and Rubber Board has been promoting beekeeping in rubber holdings. Rubber growers, however, have not been able to realize the full benefits of this additional income generation activity. If the potential is properly utilized, rubber growers can get substantial ancillary income from this practice.
The Call Centre service of the Board is available from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm on all working days. Information about the services of the Board and also technical advice regarding cultivation, production, processing etc. of rubber can be regularly sought from this Centre which is functioning at Rubber Board Head Office, Kottayam.
