Abstract:

The study explored the constraints in production and marketing of jute in Katihar district of Bihar based on a sample of 90 jute growers were selected through SRSWOR Multi-stage Sampling Technique from two clusters consisting of three villages in each of two blocks namely Kadwa and Mansahi of Katihar District. The data were collected through Survey Method. The Garrett’s Ranking Technique was used for ranking of the constraints faced by the sample farmers in production and marketing of jute. The sample consisted of 29 small and marginal farmers (32.33 per cent), 30 semi-medium farmers (33.33 per cent), 21 medium farmers (23.33 per cent) and 10 large farmers (11.11 per cent). Among the major constraint faced by jute growers, shortage of labour (GS: 67.95) was the most important constraint first followed by high cost of labor (GS: 61.94). The other important constraints included high pest and disease incidence and problems of weed, ranked as 3rd and 4th constraint by sample growers with Garrett score of 59.69 and 57.80, respectively. The important marketing constraints of jute were shortage of Government Procurement Centers (GS: .69) followed by unorganized market (GS: 51.53) and lack of remunerative prices for jute (GS: 51.27).
