Abstract


The farmer organizations can serve as a potential alternative to improve the socio-economic condition of the
farmers. The present study was conducted in Farms Produce Promotion Society (FAPRO) in Hoshiarpur of Punjab.
 50 members and 50 non-members selected randomly in the study area for data collection. The study
revealed that membership in the organisation directly affected the socio-economic conditions of the people in the
study area. It was found that income and employment of the members of the organisation were significantly higher
in comparison to the non-members. A significant difference between the members and non-members was also
observed in terms of food security and social empowerment.
