Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken with a view to study the constraints faced by the maize growers in production and marketing of maize in Marathwada Region of Maharashtra. Multiple responses taken to ascertain the constraints faced by the maize growers in production and marketing of maize. Opinion of selected maize growers was taken in order to understand the problems in production and marketing. Thus suggestions of maize growers were recorded and analyzed. Garrett’s ranking technique was employed to find out the constraints faced by the maize cultivating farmers in production of maize were explained in terms of ranks and total mean (score). The results inferred that the most important constraint in cultivation of maize were high cost of seed, Infestations of pests and diseases especially fall armyworm, Severe drought condition or long dry spell, credit facility in time, High cost of fertilizers and plant protections, High labour wages, and the most important constraint in marketing of maize were price fluctuation, lack of remunerative price of the crop, Lack of public procurement on MSP. Suggestions opined were, initiatives of govt. procurement on MSP in peak harvesting period, Seed price policy by Govt, Appropriate Credit facility in time Crop insurance in drought and pest incidence, Timely supply of inputs and Reasonable input costs.
