Abstract:

Coconut Producer Societies are a non-subsidized knowledge based, farmer centred approach of organizing farmers which aims in socio-economic upliftment through productivity improvement, cost reduction, efficient collective marketing and processing and product diversification. The study was undertaken to analyse the impact of coconut producer societies in Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala. The data were collected from 130 selected respondents from three villages using proportionate random sampling method through a well-structured and pre-tested interview schedule. It was observed that nearly three-fifth (59.23%) of the respondents had medium level of overall perceived impact followed by low (23.08%) and high (17.69%) overall perceived impacts. Initiatives like coconut producer societies will help in organizing the unorganized coconut sector and thus suitable extension strategies has to be implemented for the progress of these societies.
