Abstract:

A case study was conducted by Agricultural Extension Education Center, Koppal with an innovative ground nut grower and small scale entrepreneur for a period of two years. Cold press oil extraction unit established by the farmer could successfully extract 3.60 tons of oil seeds in a month with a net savings of Rs. 16485. The unit became self sustain in a span of one year and could generate employment of 365 man days. The consumers are satisfied with the quality and purity of oil which they purchased for consumption. Establishment of such small scale units at village level could help the farmers from the drudgery in marketing and helps to overcome market uncertainties apart from creating employment opportunities during off season which paves a way for doubling the farmer’s income.
