Identifying production and marketing constraints faced by sugarcane farmers: A study in Gujarat

Author(s):
Namrata Balas and Mahesh R Prajapati
Abstract:
The present study was conducted in Gujarat. Multi stage sampling technique was used for selection of districts, talukas, villages and farmers. Data from farmers was collected through a pre-designed schedule. Henry Garrett’s Ranking Technique was used for ranking constraints. It was found that burning of sugarcane at time of harvesting, scarcity of labour, labour wages, insufficient and delayed irrigation water supply from canals and pest and disease occurrence were major production constraints in the study area. Price paid for sugarcane, market options for selling of sugarcane and sugar factory’s share authority were major marketing constraints. It was suggested that farmers should adopt drip irrigation to resolve irrigation and weed issues in the study area.
