Farmers producer companies working in Vegetable
production, processing and value addition. Three successful

infrastructural, and marketing problems. Shortage of skilled
labour, lack of knowledge of recent technologies in
horticulture, ignorance of members, social security, lack of
linkages with other farmers organization, lack of enough
seed capital, lack of power supply, price fluctuation of
horticultural crops and delayed payment to farmers from
