Abstract

The study on storage structures carried out in North Bihar reported that the fanning community owned at least 13 different types of storage structures for storing their agricultural produce. Among all storage structures, gunny bags were in maximum use (25.18%). The fanners use different structures at a time for the storage. Only 4 per cent of the respondents use single storage container in the fonn of gunny bags which was the most common one in most of the houses along with other structures. The respondents were found to use 29 different combinations of storage structures. The ownership pattern of storage structures differed between the medium to large famers and small to marginal fanners. The investment on storage structures was found to depend mainly on the holding size, one of the Strongest indication of economic status of rural families.
