Farmer Producer Organisations is a crucial strategy for creating an ecosystem for enhancing farmers profits. Ex-postÂ facto research design was adopted to examine the constraints faced by different stake holders involved in formation andÂ operationalisation of Kodangal Farmer service Producer Company (KFPC) in Telangana state. Data was collected from 30 member
farmers, 30 non-member farmers, 10 Board of Directors (BoDs) and 12 officials of the FPC. Hence, total samples becomes 82.Â Garrett tanking technique of constraint analysis showed that lack of awareness among farmers and socio-cultural barriers were theÂ major problems faced by the supporting institution and Board of Directors (BoDs) at the time of formation of FPC. DuringÂ operationalisation, lack of adequate number of godowns, store houses, illiteracy, weak educational exposure in maintaining
accounts and records were the major hindering factors for supporting institution and BoDs respectively. Irregular procurement ofÂ produce was the major operational constraint opined by the member farmers. High cost of labour and lack of assured procurementÂ facilities were the major labour and economic and marketing constraints respectively.
