Integrated farming of mustard and beekeeping in the same field is expanding in different parts of the country as it has been found to be very profitable.
The beekeeping in mustard fields boosts the yield while reduces the production cost.
Mustard is a cool-weather crop and is grown from seeds sown in early spring.
Farmers cultivate mustard from mid-December to the end of January and the bright yellow mustard flowers are now in full bloom everywhere. Now farmers are passing a busy time taking care of beehives and collecting honey from mustard fields.
