Abstract:

A research study of the large cardamom growers in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh to highlight the problem faced during the production and marketing was conducted during the year 2014-2015, wherein, a hundred numbers of large cardamom growers were selected from four different villages by following stratified simple random sampling method. The selected farmers were classified into three groups based on their total land under large cardamom cultivation viz. Category-I (0.10-0.50 ha), Category-II (0.51 to 1.46 ha) and Category-III (= 1.47 ha <). The study reveals that 49.00 per cent of the respondents belonged to the age group of below 40 years, followed by 39.00 per cent in the middle age group between 41-60 years and 12.00 per cent in the old age group above 61 years, the male: female ratio of 0.96 with a literacy rate of (72.17 per cent) and an illiteracy rate of (27.83 per cent) was observed. The earners constituted about 34.79 per cent of the total sample. 94.00 per cent of the respondents practiced agriculture as their primary occupation and the average size of land holding for the respondents was found out to be 10.20 ha/family. A large portion of about 84.58 per cent of the total land was found to be under jhum cultivation with an average of 8.65 ha / household and the average area of 1.01 ha / family under large cardamom cultivation. The average yield per hectare was found to be 345.35 kg / ha. While some of the major problems faced by the large cardamom growers viz; lack of knowledge and training in scientific methods of cultivation, post harvest losses, unawareness about market information, pest and disease incidence and their management etc.
