Abstract:
Finger millet has a significant role in the food economy of the people who grow and consume it; increasing production will have to be achieved to ensure regional food security. The amount of food gained from own production, household size, educational level of household head, and household income were found to be factors in determining the food security status of farming families in the research region. This study was conducted in four selected blocks of the Koraput district of Odisha. A total of 120 respondents were randomly selected from each selected block for the study. The present study assessed the socio-economic status of SHG and Non-SHG members in the value addition of finger millet. The data collection was done by the use of ex post facto design and through pre-tested structured personal interview schedule. The study showed that the majority (85%) of the respondents belonged to the middle age group (30 to 50 years), went to High school (66.66%) and lived in a nuclear family (31%) with membership in one organization. The majority (74%) of the respondents were medium farmers (<1ha) and the surviving with their low annual income) Up to Rs 10,000). The majority (63.33%) of the selected respondents had acquired credit for finger millet production. The study’s findings may be used in other research or referred by Government for policy implications.
