The apiary or beekeeping has the potential to become the alternative of those people who needs the employment. The study was conducted in four blocks and four villages of West Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh state are selected to identify the socio-economic and personal factors affecting adoption of improved apiculture practices. The data collected from 120 respondents selected randomly revealed that the personal variable namely age, education, social participation, utilization of sources of information, mass media exposure, annual income, family type, land used, land holding and knowledge level and socio economic status correlated significantly with adoption of improved apiary practices.
