Abstract:
The present study was conducted in Jammu region of Jammu and Kashmir where three districts, Rajouri, Udhampur and Poonch were purposely selected for studying the Maize crop. The proposed study adopted Purposive Sampling technique for the selection of districts based on higher production of the crop under study. However the blocks, villages, producers and intermediaries were selected randomly. The main concentration of Maize in terms of production was found in Rajouri (137.275 thousand MT), Udhampur (71.068 thousand MT) and Poonch (67.577 thousand MT) districts (Directorate of Agriculture, 2018). A total number of 240 respondents were studied from six blocks of Rajouri, Poonch and Udhampur respectively. The study revealed major problems faced by the Maize growers and it was found that the disease had the most significant impact on the Maize cultivation followed by low price, environmental problems, weeds, insect-pest attack, marketing problems and non-availability of inputs.
