Résumé
The present study was under taken in two major sorghum growing districts of north Karnataka viz. Belagavi and Vijayapura. Multistage sampling procedure was followed for selection of 120 Sorghum growers and twenty market intermediaries. Primary data was collected from sample farmers and market intermediaries for the agriculture year 2014-15 through personal interview method. The secondary data on area, production and productivity of sorghum was obtained from the Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Bangalore and District statistical offices of Belagavi and Vijayapura. Tabular and budgeting techniques were used for primary data analysis, compound growth rate for secondary data and garret ranking technique for constraints analysis. Growth rates in area, production and productivity of sorghum in Belagavi district were -2.89 per cent, 0.04 per cent and 3.49 per cent respectively. Similarly in Vijayapura district growth rates in area, production and productivity of sorghum were -4.55 per cent, -1.40 per cent and 3.30 per cent respectively. The total cost incurred for kharif and rabi sorghum cultivation were 10,546.43 and 9,467.4 per acre respectively. The net returns realized per acre for kharif and rabi sorghum were found to be 6,943.97 and 4,459.06 and the benefit cost ratios in that order was 1.65 and 1.47, respectively. Producers share in consumer rupee was more in channel-III in Belagavi market (97.29 %) and Vijayapura market (98.3 %), where marketing cost was 32.42 and 34.21 respectively. Major problems faced by the farmers were high cost of labour, non-availability of labour during peak period, hence partial mechanization of farming operations is necessary. Prices were low during high arrivals and vice versa. Hence, the producers may be advised to plan their production as well as sale of the crop.
