The study was conducted in Kofale district to demonstrate and evaluate improved beekeeping technology package and strengthen research extension farmer’s linkage in beekeeping technology generation and transfer. From this district, two peasant associations were selected purposively based on their potentiality for honey production and accessibility for field monitoring. Beekeepers were selected based on their interest, colony ownership, accessibility and willingness to share experiences for other beekeepers. A total of 2 FREG comprising 20 farmers were (15 male and 5 female) were established. The mean amount of honey produced per annum from modern, transitional and traditional hives was 25.31 kg, 15.47 kg and 6.53 kg, respectively. The net benefit that obtained from modern, transitional and traditional hives was 5700 ETB, 5724 ETB and 452 ETB, respectively. Therefore, government organization and development partners should focus on scaling up and promoting of modern and transitional hives with full packages in to the areas where there is a gap to popularize the technologies.
