Paper manufacturing industries started using pulpwood like eucalyptus and casuarina in the manufacture of paper and other products. These trees are being grown by the farmers in Tamil Nadu with the farmer-industry interface. Such linkages could bring together stakeholders with different interests and organizational capacities, sharing of resources for increasing cost-efficiency and avoid duplications. The farmers, however, faced few production constraints. The objective of this study is to identify such constraints and to suggest appropriate solutions to resolve these limitations through farmer-industry interface. Water scarcity, labour shortage and disease infestations were the most limiting factors in production of pulpwood by tie-up farmers with industries. The non-tie up farmers also expressed water scarcity as the most important production constraint. The second major constraint in the pulpwood production was non-availability of scientific knowledge to carry out the farm operations at appropriate time. The farmers themselves have to arrange for procurement of quality seedlings and found difficulties to plant quality seedlings. The farmer-industry interface was found to resolve some of the production constraints
