DMPQ Premium-. Discuss the various challanges faced by Karnataka farmers.

Farmer’s suicide

Farmer’s suicide has become a pertinent issue in the state, in 2017 Karnataka faced the worst droughts in last 40-odd years. Droughts have affected several districts of the state for the fourth year running, the Northern region ranks on the top in terms of drought-prone region, as the region lacks proper irrigation system and rely on traditional methods of farming.

Lack of mechanization 

In spite of the large scale mechanisation of agriculture in Karnataka, most of the agricultural operations in larger parts are carried on by human hand using simple and conventional tools and implements like wooden plough, sickle, etc.

Agricultural Marketing 

Agricultural marketing still continues to be in a bad shape in rural Karnataka. In the absence of sound marketing facilities, the farmers have to depend upon local traders and middlemen for the disposal of their farm produce which is sold at throw-away price.

Inadequate storage facilities 

Storage facilities in the rural areas are either totally absent or grossly inadequate. Under such conditions the farmers are compelled to sell their produce immediately after the harvest at the prevailing market prices which are bound to be low. Such distress sale deprives the farmers of their legitimate income.
