Jothika V and Rajasekaran R
Collective farming is an agricultural practice in which the farmers join together and carry out the farming activities in a collective manner. The scheme was brought up in the year 2017 in order to improve the lives of the small and marginal farmers. The present study deals with the constraints faced by the farmers in practicing collective farming. The study was performed in the Tirunelveli district with the sample size of 120 farmers. The data were collected using interview schedule. The recorded data were analyzed using percentage analysis. The foremost constraint faced by almost all the farmers of the collective farming group was the excess amount for the machinery purchase to be managed and met out by the member farmers on their own. Suitable measures can be developed to minimize the constraints faced by the farmers for the better adoption of collective farming.
