Abstract:
The FPO is a farmers’ organization, made and run by farmers with the support of promoting NGO called as POPI (Producer Organization Promoting Institutions). In the initial few years of formation of FPO, POPI provides hand holding support to the farmers and when it is seeing that farmers must take it forward on their own and acquire technical and managerial capability to run the business successfully, POPI withdraws its support. Most of the FPOs are passing with multiple constraints like personal, technical, financial, infrastructural and competitive market. As a result of all this, the farmers suffer distress sale and ultimately, they do not get remunerative prices for their produce. The present study aims to explore the constraints faced by the members of Farmers Producer Organization. The data were collected through interview schedule from 320 members of four selected FPOs of Udaipur district. It was found that operational (67.60 MPS) and economic constraints (65.50) were the major obstacles faced by the FPO members which were creating problems in carrying out FPO’s activity efficiently. There is need to manage these constraints so that they do not affect the organizations significantly.
