Abstract:

The present study was undertaken at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Banda, Uttar Pradesh where Jakhani village has been selected for doubling farmers income by 2022. A total of 50 respondents were selected randomly who were engaged in agriculture and allied activities. Data were collected through focus group discussion, Participatory Rural Appraisal and a semi-structured interview schedule. The problem identification technique was used to identify and prioritize the problems related to agriculture and allied sectors in the village. The result of study revealed that nearly half of the respondents (46.00%) were belongs to old aged category. Majority of respondents (88.00%) were male, had high experience category (66.00%) and more than half of respondents (54.00%) were having low level of annual income category. The result of problem identification technique revealed that crop losses due to Anna pratha, getting less price for their produce (Pusa basmati-1121) and poor yield of major crops (Rice and wheat) were the most prioritized problems of farmers of Jakhani village with RBQ value 94.59, 90.41 and 71.66 respectively. The policy makers of state animal husbandry department can develop plan for breed improvement and should also promote organic farming by use of cow dung and urine to control the anna pratha. Farmers should be motivated to use National Agriculture Market (e-NAM) and Farmer Producer Organisation (FPO) platform for marketing of their farm produce to fetch better price for agriculture produce. Timely sowing, judicial use of fertilizer and appropriate use of planting techniques should be adopted by farmers for getting better yield of major crops.
