Dr. R. Venkattakumar  Principal Scientist and Head, Division of Social Sciences and Training, ICAR-Indain Institute of Horticulture in Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Dr. R. Venkattakumar  says during the lock down period phase 1 of COVID 19 pandemic, there was a difficulty in marketing of fruits and vegetables by the farmers due to lack of transport facilities and mobility restrictions. However, there were some initiatives by the development departments, KVKs, FPOs and private organizations to help the farmers to sell their produces. Such initiatives were documented for recommendation towards replication and drawing out some pointers as conclusions.
