Abstract:
The present study was conducted during the year 2016-17 in Mayurbhanj and Bargarh districts of Odisha state to assess the constraints faced by beneficiaries during implementation of the government programmes like Bringing Green Revolution to Eastern India (BGREI). A total of 80 BGREI beneficiary farmers were selected as respondents for the study through stratified and random sampling methods from 8 villages of two districts in Odisha state. The data were collected with the help of structured interview schedule through personal interview and focused group discussion. Major constraints perceived by farmers were ‘lack of extension supervision and technical guidance’, ‘lack of timely supply of inputs through the programme’, ‘biased attitude shown by government officials towards beneficiaries’, ‘lack of proper marketing facilities and transportation of produce’, ‘delay in payment of the produce sold by the farmers in mandies’, ‘lack of irrigation facility in Rabi season for farming’ and ‘lack of storage facility of the produce ‘as expressed by the beneficiaries. As suggested by the farmers, ‘agricultural extension officials should monitor all these constraints related issues', ‘ensure all these facilities’ and ‘should strictly adhere to the guidelines along with possible supports to beneficiary rice farmers’ for effective implementation of the programme.
