A bumper production can both be a boon and bane to the farmers and may lead to profits and losses for them. In some cases, increased crop production can be both a boon and a curse for farmers. When it comes to making a profit from the harvest, several factors come into play. A bumper crop production may not be sufficient for a farmer. Market conditions, current demand, transportation availability, and other factors all play a role in making bumper production a boon for farmers.

Bumper Production Boon or Bane for Farmers

In most cases, bumper crop production is a boon, but it can be detrimental if the crop does not reach the market on time for a variety of reasons. A farmer’s harvest will only yield benefits and huge profits if it can reach the market sooner than its competitors.

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

  • A bumper crop production appears to be a boon because a large amount of production immediately means more sales and profit, but it is not as simple as it appears.
  • A large amount of crop production can only be beneficial if the supply reaches the area of demand on time, which is heavily dependent on transportation availability.
  • Farmers are more likely to earn good profits and high incomes in this case. Otherwise, it may become a curse for them.
