Abstract:

This study seeks to examine (i) the growth rate in area, production and productivity of ginger in Bilaspur district and Chhattisgarh State, (ii) costs and returns of ginger, (iii) disposal pattern of ginger in the study area and (iv) the major constraints in production and marketing of spices and suggest suitable measures to overcome them. The study was conducted in Gaurella and Pendra blocks of Bilaspur district of Chhattisgarh state. Total 50 farmers were considered for the study, which comprised of small (25), medium (20) and large (5). The Primary data were collected from the sample farmers through personal interview method. The data were pertaining for agricultural. The study envisaged that family size of sample farmers was 5.8 members. The average farm size was found to be 2.21 hectares. Overall cropping intensity was observed to be 184 percent. The average cost of cultivation of ginger was Rs/ha. 106368 and estimated gross return was Rs/ha 392123. The cost per quintal production of ginger was noticed to be Rs 983. The average yield of ginger was q 109 q/ha. The benefit cost ratio of ginger was registered to 1:2.67. There were two marketing channels for marketing of spices, viz., Channel-I: Producer – Consumer and Channel-II: Producer – Itinerant trader – Consumer. Among the sample ginger growers more than ninety five percent marketable surpluses were observed in ginger. The major constraints pertaining to cultivation of ginger were higher cost of labour, price of seed and fertilizer. Major constraints in marketing of ginger lack of storage facility, standardization and grading at grower level in the study hence, there is a need to bring mechanization in the production and post-harvest management of ginger.
