Abstract:

India is recognized as the world’s largest producer of pulses, rice, wheat, spices and spice products. There are many areas in front of India to choose for business such as dairy, meat, poultry, fisheries and food grains etc. India has also emerged as the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world. The dominant crops in all parts of the country are the food grains. About two-third of total cropped area is occupied by these crops in the country. The major food grain crops grown in Haryana are wheat, rice, pearl millet, barley, maize etc. But there are so many risks involved with these crops during sowing to harvesting period. Even there are some kinds of risks which are continuing after the harvesting of the crops. The study has reported the results of a survey of 567 farmers conducted to investigate the risk factors involved in different food crops and also tried to investigate the related risks involved in and how and how much, farmers manage the amount of risk. There was a great difference between the actual losses and bearing capacity of the farmers. The study suggests that the farmers hardly get the reasonable prices for their produce. So, the support prices for all the crops should be determined by the government. The farmers also wanted to cover this risk in their crop insurance policy.
