Abstract:
The study was conducted in Bilaspur district, consisting of four blocks: Kota, Takhatpur, Bilha, and Masturi. 120 farmwomen were randomly selected from three villages, and an interview schedule were designed to collect data. Farm women in the study area delayed sowing dates for paddy rice due to excessive rainfall. Lehi sowing were choosen by 95.8% of farmers, while harvesting rice on bunds for drying were choosen by 89.1%. Over 75% of farmers used late harvesting, double sowing, turning harvested rice multiple times for drying, and delaying sowing.
Farm women also offered additional coping strategies, such as filling up gaps, growing more seedlings, creating channels, increasing broadcast sowing, and increasing seed rate. The majority of farm women used broadcasting methods of sowing to reduce crop failure risk. They also used short-duration crops, replanting or planting seedlings, making ditches, changing crop varieties, spraying foliar and reapplied urea, and changing planting timing. Insect and disease- resistant varieties were adopted, and routine field visits were the main methods for coping with cloudy weather.
