Abstract:

Farmers’ Interest Group (FIG) is a group approach concept under Farmers’ Produce Organisation (FPO). FPOs are running successfully helping fellow farmers in gaining more profit by means of collective purchasing and bulk selling of their produce. In this backdrop the study was conducted in Anekal taluk of Bengaluru urban district of Karnataka during 2019, in order to study the perception of the members of the FIG towards it functioning. 12o farmer members of the FIG were interviewed personally and it was found out that, less than half (40.83 %) of the respondents had better perception followed by equal proportion i.e., 30.00 and 29.16 per cent of them had average and poor perception respectively towards functioning of FIG. FIGs should be strengthened in order to empower farmers.
