Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Haryana state and two districts Hisar from southwest and Sonipat from northeast were selected, purposively. From each district, three blocks were selected randomly. Further, three villages were selected from each block making a total of 18 villages. From each village, ten farmers were selected randomly, making a total sample of 180 farmers. Hence, one hundred eighty farmers were interviewed for the study. It was found that ‘Biological: Consumption of produce by rodents, birds, monkeys’ was considered very serious constraint in primary causes of losses of value addition in horticulture and vegetable produce by the respondents and ranked Ist with weighted mean score of 2.75. It was revealed that ‘Inadequate storage facilities’ was ranked Ist and was found with serious causes according to weighted mean score of 2.61. It was shows that ‘Harvest: The separation of the commodity from the plant that produced it’ was ranked Ist as per weighted mean score of 2.39. It was found that ‘Temperature: In general, the higher the temperature, the shorter the storage life of crops’ was ranked Ist as per weighted mean score of 2.66. It was revealed that ‘Water excess increases the susceptibility to physical damage in some products’ was ranked Ist as per weighted mean score of 2.08. To reach the results aggregates total was calculated for each statement separately and on the basis of calculated scores, mean scores and mean score percentage were obtained which were ranked according to their maximum to minimum mean score percentage for assessing the knowledge level of the farmers.
