Abstract:
The study mainly focused on analyzing Constraints in production of Basmati rice. To fulfill the objective of the study, Karnal and Kaithal district were selected purposively on the basis of highest and second highest area under paddy cultivation in the state. The results of the study revealed that shortage of labour during transplanting, erratic supply of electricity, labour problem during manual harvesting and high cost of pesticides were identified as a major constraints which were inhibiting the production of Pusa basmati-1121 and CSR-30 in both Karnal and Kaithal districts of Haryana. Specifically in Karnal among all constraints of production Shortage of labour during transplanting was major constraint with MPS of 64 % followed by erratic supply of electricity with MPS 50 %. On the same lines in Sirsa district major production constraint was shortage of labour during transplanting with MPS of 62 % followed by Labour problem during manual harvesting with MPS of 53 %. Hence, Study suggested to eradicate these constraints with positive labour displacement in agriculture sector during peak seasons.
