Abstract:

Agriculture plays a pivotal role in the Indian economy. The economic reforms did not include any specific package specifically designed for agriculture which showed low growth, poverty, unemployment, inequalities in access to health and education and poor performance of agriculture sector and experienced more farmers’ suicides. It may be noted that Indian agriculture is the home of small and marginal farmers. Therefore, the future of sustainable agriculture growth and food security in India depends on the performance of small and marginal farmers. There are also concerns on food security and livelihoods. The study was conducted in Gurgaon division of Haryana state and two districts from Gurgaon division i.e. Rewari and Mahendragarh were selected randomly. From selected two blocks Jatusana and Kanina, four villages (two from each block) Dahina and Maseet from Jatusana and Kakrala and Rambas from Kanina were selected randomly. From the selected villages a sample of 75 small and marginal farm families from was drawn randomly to make the total sample size of 300 farm families. In the study problems faced by farm families related to livelihood security was assessed and in Rewari district sample households highly faced problems related to climate (Rank I, WMS 2.24) followed by problems related to government (Rank II, WMS 2.08), problems related to household (Rank III and WMS 2.03), problems related to agriculture (Rank IV and WMS 1.98) and problems related to climate (Rank V, WMS 2.24) respectively.
