An Empirical Analysis on Acumen of Farmer Members on Farmer Producer Companies

The current study was done in Maharashtra, India, with the goal of analysing farmers’ attitudes of Farmer Producer Companies (FPCs). The bulk of Indian farmers, who make for more than 86 percent of the farming population, continue to suffer numerous obstacles. The study’s sample respondents were farmers who were members of the organisation. According to the findings of this study, 96.66 percent of farmers in category I, 82.73 percent of farmers in category II, and 77.50 percent of farmers in category III reported an increase in yields after joining a producer business. It was also noted that the quality of the produce had improved, and the majority of the farmers were satisfied with the price they received for their produce after joining FPCs. It was also fascinating to see that the farmers’ problems were different in each of the three FPC groups. However, the manipulation of quotas and quality criteria by some corporations was a widespread problem for farmers in categories II and III. The SWOT analysis found that the primary strengths identified by farmers were more or less the same in the selected FPCs, such as provision of inputs and production services, higher yields due to better management, reducing price risk, and better bargaining for small holders. As regarded by the farmers, the adoption of new production technology was a shared weakness, and pro-government policy was a key opportunity for all producer enterprises. The challenge of sustaining long-term operations, cutthroat competition among organisations, and societal and cultural restraints are all recurrent threats to producer companies of all types.
