Abstract:

The present study attempts to scrutinize the socio-economic profile of vegetable farmers of Balaghat Murjhad farm, Waraseoni Madhya Pradesh. The study was conducted in three villages located at Koppe, Chillod, and lendejhari, Balaghat Murjhad farm, Waraseoni. Data for the study was collected from a sample of 120 vegetable farmers. The findings of the study reveal that, the 53.337% of the vegetable farmers had high school education. Among the sample about 52.50 per cent of farmers were small. As far as social participation is concerned about 20 per cent of vegetable farmers were the member of two organizations. The study revealed that the farmer can get an additional income of about Rs. 283 per day in addition to their routine work from their badi with the production of different vegetables. The socio-economic status of the farmers can be improved by imparting technical knowledge/ training to vegetable farmers, increasing their education level and increasing their social participation.
