The whole world has concluded in this chaotic and confusing world that doing any activity with the wisdom of achieving great heights is only possible through following a systematic approach, i.e. management principles. In the recent past, management principles are gaining a lot of importance for obvious reasons. In the VUCA world, the job of decision-makers is more trivial than before irrespective of any field. With this backdrop, the present article is started with 3 main objectives of knowing the Paddy cultivation procedure and understanding the level of application of management principles, and at last to find out the impact of following management principles in the process of Paddy cultivation. The study also made an effort to find out the significance of the planning principles in controlling the diseases of the Paddy crop. The article concluded by saying that even an illiterate farmer also uses all the principles of management appropriately. Therefore, through some training or up-skilling programs, if the farmers are sensitized, perhaps good yield in almost all the crops can be expected. Many a time without knowing the market, price, quality of the seeds, and knowledge of various diseases many farmers lose the entire crop of the year, to avoid such untoward situations, effective usage of principles of management may help the farmer’s community
