    “To promote horticultural crops, 3.00 crore’s provision was made by the government in 2016” (Ref. 01).

    2. Role of The Scheme

    The main problem in crop cultivation is pests attack. Pests are of two types- 1. Real pests such as insects of vegetable crops and, 2. Occasional pests such as wild animals etc. Most of the time the open field crop is attacked by the pet animals such as cow, goat, sheep etc. Damage done by them is significant. Plant-crops inside fence are safe from different animals. That’s the reason why all advanced farmers enclose their farm lands with fence.

    Fencing is an expensive thing for all small and marginal farmers. The cost of fencing and the current value of their farm land is almost equal. They face financial problem in fencing the field.

    Many state government in their current departmental scheme, planning to support the growth and overall development of farmers. Governments are supporting small and marginal farmers financially through different scheme. Community fencing is that type of scheme in which farmers are getting up to 100 percent subsidy.

    Now small and marginal farmers are able to fence their farm land with best fencing material. The benefits and importance of community fencing are as follows:

    • Crop security
    • Almost free of cost.

    The scheme is made by the governments only for small and marginal farmers.
