Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Kalaburagi district of North Eastern Karnataka, during the year 2018-19. Kalaburagi district was purposively selected because the district is the pulse bowl of the state with highest area. The study was conducted in eight villages selected from four talukas of Kalaburagi district which included 30 farmers from each selected village thus making a sample of 240 farmers using random sampling method. Ex-post-facto research design was employed for conducting study. Data was collected by using a detailed interview schedule employing personal interview method and analysed using mean, standard deviation, frequency and percentage. The major findings of the post-harvest activities revealed that, cent per cent of the farmers used jute bags to store the produce; farmers do not use processing the redgram seeds. Over half 56.25 per cent of the farmers used redgram stalk as fuel as consumption purpose. About 43.75 per cent of the farmers used redgram stalk for compost preparation and marketing behaviour revealed that, majority (88.75 %) of the farmers used mode of transport as tractor. About (78.33 %) of the farmers received market price information over phone to the market/personal visit. While (67.92 %) of the farmers sold their produce immediately after the harvest whatever the prices may be, whereas, (59.17 %) of the farmers sold their produce to government agencies APMC.
