Abstract:

India is home to 30 per cent of total organic producers in the world, but accounts only for just 2.59 per cent of the total organic cultivation area. In Krishna district mostly farmers prefer to grow paddy organically as it gives better return as compared to other crops under organic condition. Different crop growers of certified organic farmers of Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh are still facing various types of constraints in adoption of organic farming; hence the study entitled “Constraints analysis in adoption of organic farming by the farmers in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh” was conducted in ten paddy growing villages covering 180 respondents comprising of certified organic farmers (20 from each village). With the help of a pre- tested interview schedule, a survey was conducted to collect relevant data and then appropriate statistical procedure was employed to analyse the data for assessing the effect of different constraints in the adoption component. Findings revealed that majority of the certified organic farmers faced constraints i.e. Non-availability of traditional seeds (75.55 %)), inadequate availability of organic inputs in time (72.22 %), lack of standard package of practices for practicing organic farming (68.33 %), lack of innovativeness (65.55 %), lack of technical guidance on organic farming (58.89 %) etc. Meaningful suggestions were encountered from the certified organic farmers for enhancing adoption of organic farming in the study area.
