Collective farming is a practice of agriculture where the farmers join hands with one another and become a joint enterprise. In Tamil Nadu, the scheme was brought to empower the lives of small and marginal farmers.

A sample size of 120 farmers who were practicing collective farming was taken for the study. The data were collected by using a well–structured and pre-tested interview schedule.
