Abstract

Jasmine is one of the oldest fragrant flowers cultivated by man. The flower is used for various purposes viz; making garlands, bouquet, dew rating hair of women and religious offerings. It is also used for the production of jasmine concrete which is used in cosmetics and perfumery industries. More than 80 jasmine spices are found in India of which only three spices are used for commercial cultivation. The objectives are (i) To know about the economic conditions of flower cultivators, (ii) To know about the problems of flower cultivators. Agriculture is being a state subject. Many states have established state marketing boards with representatives of farmers including small and marginal farmers. They should be given more power and provided with the necessary facilities and resources. Unless the farmers themselves become up, on amount of state assistance can substantially improve their economic conditions.
