This working paper is a summary of the recent adoption of ICT for agriculture for effective production of honey and promotion of linkages between producers and consumers. The adoption of beekeeping practices and its application technology has expanded. To date, a number of honey producer cooperatives and companies are serving more than a million consumers.
