Is Bumper Production Boon or Bane for the Farmers?

By Shivank Goel|Updated : September 5th, 2022

Bumper production of crops can be more likely a boon but also a bane for the farmers in some situations. Several factors come into play when it comes to gaining profit from the harvest for the farmers. Just a bumper crop production may not prove enough for a farmer. Factors like market situation, current demand, transportation availability, etc., play a significant role in making bumper production a boon for the farmers.

A bumper crop production immediately sounds like a boon as a large amount of production instantly means more sales and profit, but it is not as easy as it sounds. A high amount of crop production can only be a boon if the supply reaches the area of demand well in time, which depends on transportation availability to a large extent. In this case, the farmers are more likely to earn good profit and high income. Else, it may just turn into a bane for them.

How can Bumper Production be a Bane?

Bumper production of a crop proves to be a boon in most cases, but it can prove otherwise if the production doesn't reach the market on time for several reasons. A farmer's harvest will only reap benefits and huge profit for him if it can reach the market soon enough, sooner than his other competitors.

Sometimes, farmers tend to not plan much in advance and fail to manage the bumper harvest, which turns into heavy losses for them due to the non-availability of transportation facilities or primarily due to a shortage of storage space.
