Description
About the Book

Fruits and vegetables are important ingredients of a balanced diet. According to the National Commission on Agriculture, the demand for vegetables by 2002 AD will be around 131 million tonnes. This would mean that vegetable production has to be increased. With the agricultural development and increase in the output of farm products, there must as well be a market for these products and a fair price for the farmers. The problem of marketing of agricultural produce has assumed added significance, particularly after the advent of commercialization of agriculture. The call to ‘produce more’ without providing an efficient marketing which could assure a fair return to the producer carries no conviction with the farmer.

Marginal and small farmers of backward community are the main growers of vegetables in the country. They do not get the secured benefit by marketing of vegetables due to high fluctuation in vegetables’ prices due to its unorganised marketing system and perishable nature of the products. The present book explains the problems of marketing of vegetables and fruits, especially by the small and marginal farmers.

It is hoped that these articles will enhance our understanding of this complex system of agriculture marketing.

Foreword

Fruits and vegetables are important ingredients of a balanced diet. According to the National Commission on Agriculture, the demand for vegetables by 2002 AD will be around 131 million tonnes. This would mean that vegetable production has to be increased. With ine agricultural development and increase in the output of farm products, there must as well be a market for these products and a fair price for the farmers. The problem of marketing of agricultural produce has assumed added significance, particularly after the advent of commercialization of agriculture. The Call to ‘produce more’ without providing an efficient marketing which could assure a fair return to the producer carries no conviction with the farmer. Vegetable growers face two types of uncertainties : (a) farmer can never predict accurately the yield because of fluctuations in rainfall, temperature, humidity, attack of pests and diseases etc. and (b) price uncertainty—— the wide fluctuation in prices of inputs and outputs which affects the net income of the farmers. These variations may be seasonal or random in nature. Factors like price fluctuations influence a great dea! in bringing area under cultivation particularly of cash crops like vegetables. Supply and demand especially of perishable commodities in the market at a point of time determine the market price irrespective of any consideration of the cost of cultivation.

The demand for vegetables in general being more or less constant, the prices depend on the market arrivals. They are lowest when the market arrivals are high and vice-versa. This is so because vegetables are highly perishable and cannot be stored for long. The ultimate earning of a farmer depends entirely on the efficiency of his production and marketing.

The papers presented in the national seminar on "Problems of Small and Marginal farmers in Marketing Fruits and Vegetables" have discussed the various aspects and problems of fruits and vegetables marketing.

The seminar was conceived, organized and coordinated by Shri Ajit Singh, Secretary, Farmers’ Education and Welfare Society with the help of ICAR.

It is hoped that these articles will enhance our understanding of this complex systems of agriculture marketing.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
