Patent issued for beekeeping research by SPPU professors

The government has recently granted a patent to the beekeeping research conducted by the professors of Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU)

The government has recently granted a patent to beekeeping research carried out by professors at Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU). Professor Radhakrishna Pandit from the Department of Zoology and Professor Radhakrishna Pandit have created an ‘intelligent honeycomb monitoring device’

SPPU Vice-Chancellor Karbhari Kale and Pro-Vice Chancellor Sanjiv Sonwane congratulated Pandit and his team on the achievement.

Professor Pandit said: “This device will be used to better monitor bees. Cameras have been installed for this. Traditional methods of collecting honey destroy many colonies of wild bees, therefore it is considered appropriate to keep bees in boxes and collect honey scientifically. Bees play an important role in the pollination process. This helps to increase production. If such equipment is kept in the field, the production capacity of farmers increases. Cameras are installed in this device that we have developed to allow detailed observation of the bees. It will also allow more research on bees.

    On the rocks

    I love Rashi – the statement on the rock is scribbled in white. “Love” is represented with a heart. The same statement covers the surface of the adjacent rock.

A cow is mooing somewhere. At the end, we come back to Rashi.
