Bee keeping in Kenya has been practiced since time immemorial. Currently there are two million hives in the country. Most bee keepers in Kenya base their practise on indigenous knowledge which has been passed from one generation to the next.
Areas covered with bees in the country include the mountainous areas, the savannah area, the coastal region and the drier parts of northern Kenya.
During the initiation of the INCIP programme, the starting flock was sourced from different parts of the country to form base population.
Egerton University has a well established and equipped Library that serves the university’s learning and research information needs.
Egerton University Digital repository is a digital service that collects, preserves, and distributes digital material. Repositories are important tools for preserving an organization's legacy; they facilitate digital preservation and scholarly communication.
Egerton University Library provides access to a huge range of electronic resources (e-resources) to support learning, teaching and research for students, staff and researchers.
The information resources are made accessible through the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC), indexes and, in some libraries the manual card catalogue. The electronic resources are accessed through the IP addresses for those within the main Campus and through usernames and passwords for users outside the main Campus.
