An investigation on the investment patterns of farmers in the Indian market, with a particular focus on the state of Bihar

Dr. Sandeep Kumar Sourav

This study examines ranchers' speculation behaviour between 1981 and 2019 using the annual National Sample Survey Debt and Investment Survey (Schedule 18.2). First, the organisation of fixed capital consumption is examined spatially, with a focus on patterns and varieties. Next, factors determining interest in horticulture and its impact on ranch pay are examined. According to the analysis, there was a remarkable increase in family unit speculation from Rs. 2133 in 1981-1982 to Rs. 6993 in 2012-13 at 2004-05 prices. Private land and buildings make up a sizable portion of this, accounting for 68%, then ranch business (23.3%) and non-ranch business (8.7%). During this time, capital consumption on private property and buildings has increased at a significantly faster rate (4.7%) than in ranch and non-ranch organisations (2.52 and 3.31%, respectively). Growing urbanisation, the expansion of contemporary activities, and the poor pay associated with development may have made interest in land more lucrative than cultivation. Ranchers' evolving needs for ventures include recommendations for horticulture development, however this is done at the expense of homestead resources. The precise study, which relies on three-stage least squares, provides support for these findings since it shows that ranchers' shifting preferences and governmental investment have a negative impact on interest in horticulture. Both public and private initiatives, as well as strong foundational improvements and motivational structures, have a significant and favourable impact on horticultural pay. The analysis places a strong emphasis on sustaining ranchers' passion for gardening in light of the rapidly shifting demands of their business ventures. Because of this, increasing asset distribution and providing institutional financing to agriculture is a fundamental function of the distinct state government.
When compared to the other progressive states in the nation, Bihar's agriculture sector is growing at a significantly faster rate. Nevertheless, the state lacks the necessary commercial infrastructure to effectively handle the agricultural commodities. In reality, Bihar was ranked third from the bottom among states in a 2019 World Bank study for the calibre and extent of its regulated marketing infrastructure. Regarding farmers' satisfaction with the current state of the market, the state came in fourth to last. Farmers are discouraged from attending the markets by the expensive transportation expenses and the 20 inadequate and subpar infrastructure at the regulated markets.
