India is the land where there is diversity not only in religion, tradition, language, caste, creed , colour but also in the climatic and soil condition. Agriculture is the backbone of Indian Economy. About 65% of Indian population depends directly on agriculture and it accounts for around 22% of GDP. Of all the states of India U.P has a significant role in Agricultural production in which 45% of the total land mass is utilized for production where gross sown area 24,927 hectares and net sown area 16,417 hectares. There are large number of Fruits & vegetables grown in U.P region. Allahabad has a very fertile land because of the efficient rainfall and most importantly its presence near the gangetic plain which makes the land very fertile and rich in minerals which enhances the productivity of land.
The prime objective of a our survey is to decipher the Laguna in the production of vegetables and fruits and to understand the the plight of farmers in carrying out agricultural activity like how they do the faming activity, Our objective is to understand the Supply Chain Management of Fruits and Vegetables in Ganga Basin at Allahabad. The enormous losses of vegetables produced in the country are mainly because of the lack of proper infrastructure for storage and transportation under controlled conditions. Of late, Supply Chain Management (SCM) is gaining importance due to globalization. A supply chain is a set of three or more organizations linked directly by one or more of the upstream or downstream flows of products, services, finances, and information from a source to a customer. Supply chain management, then, endorses a supply chain orientation, and involves proactively managing the two-way movement and co-ordination of goods, services, information and funds (i.e. the various flows) from raw material through to end user.
In this survey we have collected various information regarding the growth and input factor affecting the production of fruits and vegetables through various sources like journals, government report, Centre for monitoring Indian economy pvt. Ltd. (CMIE) report, Indian institute of vegetable research etc as our secondary data sources, while actual survey data as primary data source.
This rural survey was conducted using participatory approaches, including meetings with beneficiaries, interviews with local person, children over and under 14 years, women and key people related to these schemes in agriculture sector. We with our team made several site visits for the programs running by central government to discuss schemes implementation with people directly.
In combination with these processes, we also conducted a literature review of pertinent material (including sector-specific studies, research journals, CMIE data, research by private institutions and the Government of India, as well as research documents). The outcome of this survey gave us the proper status of the schemes running in Ganga belt. It also helps us to under why the schemes fail or it does not have the desire outcome with which it was started. The outcome of this survey provides us with ground level data which help us in introspecting the causes of the schemes success and failure
