Abstract:

A study was conducted in Sankilo and Tentalpur villages from Cuttack district of Odisha to analyze the gender role for institutionalizing a women-centric rice value chain model and establish a comparison between men and women in rice farming with respect to awareness level, role performance, evaluation of training needs with respect to their skill gaps, establishing a correlation between the variables and developing a refined and women centric value chain which will provide a win-win situation for every stakeholder and also avoiding unusual unforeseen losses from overstocking at the market level. The results revealed that involvement of women farmers was more in case of preparation of value addition products (95%) in comparison to other activities. It was assessed that 70 per cent of women respondents have access to FYM followed by storage, weed management etc. In access to infrastructure and machinery it was a joint access by 72.50 per cent whereas, control is 60 per cent by male members, 52.5 per cent of men and women farmers jointly had control over FYM and 27.5 per cent over manpower. In intercultural operations jointly both male and female farmers have participated but men has more control over it by 75 per cent. The awareness level among the women paddy growers was highest in case of storage, preparation of value added products, line transplanting, weed management and seed treatment. The women farmers needed training in ‘Pesticide application’ and ‘disease management’ for safe and profitable farming which ranked first.
