The primary data were collected from 120 organic vegetable growers through structured questionnaire method for the study. Cent percent of the respondents had expressed problem of lack of literature or package of practices on organic vegetable production followed by low yield comparatively conventionally growing (96.66%). Majority of the organic vegetable growers noticed that lack of support from the government agencies and other relevant departments in the farm of subsidy and financial assistance (92.50%). Similarly 100% of the respondents expressed the problem of lack of minimum support price for organically grown vegetables, followed by non availability of market exclusively for organic produce (91.66%). Majority of them noticed that absence of premium price for organic vegetables in local market (78.33%) followed by inability to identify marketing networks for organic vegetables (60.83%). All organic vegetable growers suggested that the intensive research on organic farming and networking of research information, followed by supply of organic inputs at subsidized rate (97.50%). Majority of the vegetable growers were suggested that multiplication of indigenous seeds material (85.83%) for further production. Similarly, around 68% of the respondents suggested that co-ordination with animal husbandry department to increase the local cattle population for compost production. The entire organic vegetable growers had suggested that government has to fix minimum support price for organically produce vegetables followed by encourage setting up exclusive organic vegetable marketing centres (94.96%). Majority of the growers had suggested that developing organic vegetable supply chain system (90%). Keywords: Organic vegetable vegetables, constraints in production and marketing and organic vegetable growers 1. Introduction The main idea behind organic vegetable farming is zero impact on the environment. The motto of the organic vegetable farming is to protect the earth resources and produce safe and healthy vegetables. Organic farming is a production system that sustains the soil health, ecosystem and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local condition, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic vegetable farming combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved. The ill effects of chemicals used in vegetables production have changed the mindset of some consumers of different countries who are now buying organic with high premium for health. 558

2 Organic farming is a method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. Green revolution technologies, supported by policies, and fuelled by agrochemicals, mechanization and irrigation, are well known to have enhanced agricultural production and productivity. While these technologies have greatly helped to developing countries to address their food security needs, they also impacted the ecosystem due to use of pesticides, excessive use of fertilizers, mono-cropping, loss of microbial flora resulting in loss of sustainable produce. Farmers using these technologies have to depend on external inputs which constitute the major cost of vegetable production, thereby eroding their profits. The manufacture of fertilizers and pesticides, the two major inputs of green revolution technologies, need fossil fuels and/or expensive energy, and is associated with serious environmental and health issues. The necessity of having an alternative organic vegetable production which can function in an eco-friendly system while sustaining and increasing the crop productivity is being realized now. Organic vegetable farming is recognized as the best known alternative to the conventional vegetable production. Adverse effects of the modern vegetable production practices not only on the farm but also on the health of living organisms and human being and thus on the environment have been well documented all over the world. 2. Review of literature Kamble et al (1987) reported that 20.02% of farmers of Ahamadnagar district of Maharastra suggested for arranging training on organic method demonstration on the aspects treating seeds with bio-fertilizers. The need for supply of certified seeds on educating on organic cultivation result demonstration (18.20%) timely supply of bio fertilizers with wide publicity (16.36%) and organizing training classes (7.27%) were the other suggestions highlighted by organic growers. Saxena and Singh (2000) reported that, a high percent of organic farmers in Malwa region of Madya Pradesh (70.90%) had the problem of non-availability of bio fertilizers culture of good quality, followed by lack of knowledge and skill about improved methods of compost making (63.40%). Similarly lack of awareness about the time concentration and method of bio-fertilizers application (59.10%) and non-availability of vermicompost in adequate quantity (43.63%) were the other problems noticed with organic growing farmers. Thimmaredyy (2001) reported that, the majority of the farmers (70.00%) of North Karnataka expressed the problem of no separate market for organically grown produce followed by 40% of the respondents expressed the problem of decline in returns in the initial period (3-4 years) of organic farming. Similarly the labour problem was expressed by percent of the respondent whereas percent of the respondents expressed the problems of non availability of organic pesticides. Similarly(10.00%) of respondents expressed the problem of non availability of good quality compost, no support and encouragement from sugarcane factory management to produce sugarcane by organic methods, no remunerative price for organic produce and discouragement by people in continued adoption of organic cultivation. Sunil Kumar (2004) in a study conducted on tomato growers of Belgaum district in Karnataka reported that majority of respondents (75.83%) faced the problems of technical knowledge, whereas percent of the respondents expressed the problem of fluctuation in 559

3 the market price followed by high transportation cost (62.53%), labour shortage and high wage (55.83%) and lack of irrigation facilities and power shortage (46.66%). Shashidhara (2006) in a study on management of eco friendly practices by vegetable growers in North Karnataka observed that more number of respondents expressed that the suggestions like availability of pest resistant varieties (83.12%) and organizing training on eco-friendly practices (73.75%) around two third of respondents expressed the need for encouraging farmers to grow organic vegetables through subsidies, technical guidance etc (68.75%), strict quality control measures for pesticides (65.62%) and use of bio-pesticides and bio-fertilizers (61.85%). Use of bio agents to control pest (56.87%), premium price for organically grown vegetables (53.75%), educating public and farmers about environmental issues (36.25%) and introducing environmental education at secondary level (26.62%) were the other suggestions expressed to promote organic training. K. Guruswamy and K. Balanaga Guruna (2010) have done a study on SWOT Analysis of organic farming management in India, to analyze the internal environment and identifying external opportunities. SWOT analysis of organic farming,reveals that organic farming practices provide number of valuable benefits like poison less food, harmless water, soil restoration to the natural condition, creating friendlier environment and total employment for farmers. 2.1 Justification or Importance of the study Inorganic farming affects the environment in multiple ways. Pesticides sprayed on vegetables not only destroy pests and contaminate the vegetables but also kill beneficial insects. The residue of these pesticides affects the health of human being. Organic farming on natural resources favours interactions with in the agro ecosystem that are vital for both vegetable production and nature conservation. Ecological services derived include organic farming and conditioning, soil stabilization and waste recycling. Organically grown food is dramatically superior in mineral content. So, Constraints in production and marketing of organic vegetables growers in Belagavi District of Karnataka State is most appropriate. 3. Objectives of the study 1. To study the constraints in production and marketing of organic vegetable growers and obtain their suggestion 3.1 Scope of the study This study would help the common people to understand the importance of organic vegetable production. Study may also help the organic vegetable growers or cultivators to take up appropriate steps to increase their income by the application of various production practices and marketing methods given by the organic vegetable growers. This study would help the both horticulture and policy makers to understand the easy organic vegetable production practices and marketing by the farmers. Thereby programmes, policies and incentives can be designed by the Government to minimize the constraints in production and marketing of organic vegetable growers. 3.2 Methodology 560

4 The present study was conducted in Belagavi district of Karnataka. Primary data were collected from 120 organic vegetable growers / farmers through structured questionnaire method at Belagavi district of Karnataka.

Conclusion Belagavi district had developed vast and rich traditional vegetable production knowledge since ancient times and presently finding solutions to constraints created by over use of agrochemicals. Today s modern farming is not sustainable in consonance with economics, ecology, equity, energy and socio-cultural dimensions. Indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers, weedicides and pesticides has resulted in various environmental and health hazards along with socio-economic problems. Chemical base farming system is no more beneficial as it requires high input and low return, resulting migration of youth from rural area to urban area in search of other jobs. In order promote organic vegetable farming in the district; there 564

8 is a need to frame out proper policies for implementing and synergizing various organic vegetable farming programmes, policies and incentives. There is a need for proper coordination among different stake holders and synergizing various schemes under organic vegetable farming in order to develop proper production and market linkages for strengthen the production and marketing of organic vegetables in the district. 6.
