Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra State with an objective to ascertain the relationship between the profile of the member farmers and impact of Farmer Producer Company on the member farmers. The ex-post-facto research design was used for the study. Total 220 farmer producer company’s member farmers were selected for the present study. The study revealed that the FPO member farmers’ characteristics namely education, social participation, participation in extension activities, annual income, land holding, mass media exposure, extension contact, risk orientation and economic motivation were having positive and significant relationship with the impact of farmer producer organization on the member farmers at 0.01 level of probability. Farming and marketing behaviour had positive and significant relationship with the impact of farmer producer organization at 0.05 level of probability. Therefore, these variables need to be considered for by Farmer Producer Organization project implementing agencies while promoting FPOs in the rural areas for better impact of Farmer Producer Company. However, age and occupation were having negatively non-significant relationship with the impact of farmer producer organization.
