Abstract:
The demand for flowers and ornamental plants for different needs like religious, official ceremonies, parties, house decorations, weddings, funerals etc is on the rise. This demand for fresh flowers and plants is increasing worldwide over the coming years. Tamil Nadu is a leading state in area and production of flowers in the country. Jasmine is one of the commercial flower crops grown in Tamil Nadu and India. Many intermediaries and traders are involved in Jasmine trade and the producers were getting very low price during lean and peak seasons of jasmine. Sathyamanagalam Farmers Flower Growers’ Head Association (SaFGA) is one of the organization who have entered into this and streamlined the distribution of Jasmine to the local, regional and national markets. This study has addressed the success story of a farmers’ organization in Erode District with regard to enhancing the area production and productivity of Jasmine and the constraints associated with production and distribution of jasmine.
