Abstract:

The present study reports strategies to overcome constraints in adoption of improved paddy cultivation practices and it was conducted in Navsari and Surat districts of South Gujarat in the year 2014-2016 with 100 respondent paddy growers, strategies were developed by prior identification of constraints and suggestions from respondent paddy growers and experts opinion. Majority of the respondent paddy growers reported the constraint “Labour problem” followed by the constraint “High cost of inputs” and “Lower market price of produce”, on contrary to constraints the suggestions were “Provide financial support for purchasing of farm machinery” followed by the suggestions “Generic agriculture stores should be formed where quality inputs are sold at higher subsidized price” and “Provide storage facility for harnessing advantage of hoarding”. The proposed strategies were Farmers should collectively help each other with their available resources by forming Commodity Interest Group under ATMA to mitigate labour problem, ATIC should be approached for low cost input and avoid high input cost, Approach APMC in the district for storage of produce and take advantage of hedging. The proposed strategies must be implemented effectively by implementing agencies for counteracting the constraints faced by the paddy growers in adoption of improved paddy cultivation practices.
