Abstract:
The present study investigated production, marketed surplus, and disposal pattern of milk in Northern Dry Zone of Karnataka. The study covered 240 milk producers selected randomly from four districts which were post-stratified into landless, marginal, small, medium and large farmers. The study revealed that the overall average daily milk production per households per day was found to be 17.68 litre, which varied from 9.61 litre in the case of small farmers to 26.73 litre in the case of large farmers. The percentage of marketed surplus of milk was found to be highest in marginal farmers (81.82%) while, it was lowest in large farmers (74.41%). About 57.73 per cent of total marketed surplus of milk was disposed through un-organized sector; whereas 42.27 per cent of total marketed surplus was disposed through organized sector. Procurement price of milk had positive effect on marketed surplus of milk whereas family size was found to be negatively correlated (-0.052) with marketed surplus.
