Constraints and Suggestions Perceived by the Pulse Farmers of Nayagarh District of Odisha
International Journal of Plant & Soil Science,
Aims: To study the constraints faced by pulse farmers in adopting improved pulse production practices and their suggestions to overcome the constraints.
Study Design: Ex post facto survey research design with proportionate random sampling techniques.
Place and Duration of the Study: Nayagarh district of Odisha during 2019-2020.
Methodology: A total of 256 respondents covering 8 villages from 4 blocks of Nayagarh district were selected as sample respondents. The data were collected by personal interview using a well structured questionnaire. The data were tabulated and analyzed by using Garrett’s ranking technique for the study of constraints and suggestions.
Results: The findings of the study indicate that major constraints for adopting pulse production technologies were improper knowledge about recommended doses of pesticides and fertilizers (59.57 percent), lack of knowledge about improved agricultural technologies time to time (59.2 percent), lack of technology and training to create local storage structures (66.55 percent) and inadequate training of farmers (55.49 percent). Major suggestions of pulse farmers to overcome these constraints were improved varieties should be provided (68.04 percent), more number of FLDs should be given in village to enable other farmers to take advantage (66.85 percent) and training be imparted to implement new technologies (66.85 percent).
Conclusion: Research on modification of agronomic practices and their different components for excelling production under changing climatic scenario need to be strengthened with more training for the farmers to enrich their knowledge and skill about pulse production.
