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. Data were collected from the 50 members and 50 non-members selected randomly from the study area. 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.
