The study aims at identifying the potential role of Indian farmwomen in fruit based production system along with realising their constraints which limits their considerable contribution in terms of technology application, use of agri-inputs and commercial marketing. The magnitude of their participation is hardly visualized, which creates perceptible gender gap. The emerging issues of farmer suicide, rural-urban migration of male members and disenchantment of rural youth in agriculture, overburden the Indian farmwomen with farming activities. Gender analysis will help in formulating suitable strategies for providing better platform to women farmers to realize their untapped potential in bring sustainability to the production system.
