Vijay Ambast and PK Jaiswal
The present study was carried out in the Surguja district of Chhattisgarh state. Data were collected from 120 respondents as 60 beneficiary respondents and 60 non-beneficiary respondents of six selected villages. The results of the study indicate that the major problem of the beneficiary respondents was ‘high charges of transportation and poor facilities’ and ‘misconception about the application of manures’ was a very serious problem in non-beneficiary respondents. Whereas sugarcane damaged by non-insect pests viz. rats, beer, elephants, and domestic cattle was the joint problem of both beneficiary and non-beneficiary respondents and it can also be observed in their suggestive measures of problems of the beneficiary respondents where the sales centre of Raghunathpur should be reopened and the charges of transportation should be fixed by the government to minimize the transportation problems. And “to promote the use of manure, the benefits of manure would have to be demonstrated and given detailed information about it” expressed by non-beneficiary respondents whereas farmers should be made aware of such techniques to deal with rats, beer and elephants as well as to provide compensation of affected farmers were expressed by both beneficiary and non-beneficiary respondents of the study area.
