Abstract:

The study examines the constraints faced in functioning of farmer groups in Warangal District of Telangana State, using a representative sample of 120 farmers from the District. Three farmer groups were selected for the study Rythumitra groups (G1), Farmer groups of NGO (G2) and Commodity interest groups (G3). A sample of 40 respondents from each group were selected for the study. Majority of respondents from G1 expressed that lack of village level worker to assist the group management activities was major constraint. In the case of respondents of G2 majority of respondents expressed that few members deviated from group adoption practices as prescribed by NGO, whereas in G3 majority of respondents expressed that uncontiguous land area of members as hindrance in functioning of group. Policy makers in order to facilitate effective functioning of groups must formulate appropriate policies by involving all the stakeholders so that farming will be sustainable and profitable.
