In each block two villages with highest area under cultivation of particular crop were selected. The sample frame work incudes selection of three crops, three blocks and six villages purposively. From each selected village, 10 per cent respondents were selected randomly thus making a sample of 145 respondents for the study. The study shows that majority of the farmers belongs to middle age in red gram farm 53.35 per cent were as in bengalgram 53.29 per cent and green gram farm 55.97 per cent. the sample average percent of male and female for different farm group was 56.17 per cent and 44.00 per cent in redgram farms, were as in Bengal gram 56.59 per cent and 42.22 per cent and in greengram farm 53.80 and 45.62 per cent respectively.

Vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine, is one of the B vitamins. It helps the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy. A simple and sensitive reversed-phase (RP) HPLC method was used for determination of vitamin B6 present in areca nut samples. Areca nut samples were collected from Shimoga, Davanagere, Chikkamagalur, Chitradurga, Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts of Karnataka, India. RP- HPLC analysis was performed with UHPLC system (Thermo fisher-ultimate 3000) equipped with UV/Visible detector and C18 column. The column effluents were monitored at 220nm. Vitamin B6 in different district ranged from 10 to 91 ppm. The mean vitamin B6 content was lowest in Shimoga district (15.68 ppm) and highest in Dakshina Kannada district (50.49 ppm). Vitamin C is a most important vitamin in the human diet, excessively present in fruits and vegetables. It is also known as ascorbic acid and is water-soluble. In areca nut vitamin C is present in trace amount.
