Abstract:

Contract farming in turmeric cultivation has gained momentum in Kandhamal district after establishment of the species industry in cooperative sector. It has been realized that the contracted farmers are being faced much constraints and feel doubt for the sustainability of the contract farming system in turmeric cultivation. A study conducted with each of 80 contracted and non-contracted turmeric growers from four panchayats of two blocks in Kandhamal districts of Odisha revealed that no insurance coverage, transparency in measurement, written agreement, clarification and understanding on suggested technologies, exposure visit to develop confidence, as well as flexibility in repayment of loan, sale price not fixed over the production cost, harassment in payment, produce not timely lifted, incompetent field staffs along with non-cooperative attitude and frequent transfer, fertilizers and bio fertilizers not supplied in time were the pertinent constraints expressed by both the contracted and non-contracted respondents. The findings therefore suggested that the contracting spices industry officials have to analyze all these constraints and extend possible supports to develop harmonious relationship benefitting both the contracted growers and contracting spices industry as well as sustainability of the contract farming in turmeric cultivation.
