Abstract


This study examined resource-use efficiency of honey production in Kachia Local Government Area, Kaduna, Nigeria. The primary data used for the investigation were obtained using structured questionnaires administered to 50 producers. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics, farm budget techniques, multiple regression analysis and resource-use efficiency. Multiple regression analysis used to examine factors influencing output of honey in the study area revealed that the coefficient of multiple determinations (R2) of 0.59 which implies that 59% of the dependent variable in the model was explained by the independent variables included in the model. Number of bee hives was significant at (p< 0.01).Estimated resource use efficiency revealed that number of bee hives and family labours were underutilized. This study concluded that the bee farmers in the study area should be given adequate training on rudiments of beekeeping.
