Singh 1 College of Agriculture SKRAU, Bikaner , India Received: Accepted: ABSTRACT The present investigation was carried out to study the price spread and efficiency in marketing of tomato. The study was conducted in Jaipur and Kota which were selected on the basis of highest area and production of tomato. Due to perishable nature of vegetable, the farmers did not stock tomato for sale in lean months. Therefore, there was no difference in marketable and marketed surplus of tomato. Total marketing cost accounted for per cent and marketing margins accounted for per cent of. In Kota, producer s share in was per cent. Total marketing cost accounted for per cent and marketing margins were per cent of. Total marketing cost accounted for per cent and marketing margins were per cent of price paid by the consumer. Total marketing cost accounted for per cent and marketing margins were per cent of price paid by the consumer. Key words: Marketing, Price spread, Tomato. INTRODUCTION Consumer preferences have shifted away from cereals and moved towards high-value agricultural produce like vegetables. With increase in economic standards, urbanization, international market integration and trade liberalization, the demand for horticultural products is expected to increase even further. On the production side, if cereal pricing is left to market forces, land will be released from traditional cultivation to meet the growing demand for non-cereal crops such as fruits and vegetables i n accordance with the diversification in consumption pattern (Mittal, 2006). Thus, in a holistic way, horticulture can be promoted as a means of agro-diversification for the second green revolution, providing the much needed impetus to the growth of agricultural sector, through increase in trade, income and employment. Presently, Indian agriculture is diversifying into the production of high value commodities, also providing an increasing role to small holding farmers. Indian rural economy had been facing the challenge of inability to manage the problems involved with transition of agriculture from a supplydriven value chain to a demand-led market-oriented supply chain (Viswanadham, 2006). In Rajasthan, area under vegetables crop in was thousand ha and production was 885 thousand MT with productivity of 6.3 MT/ha (Anonymous, ). In India, tomato is grown in 865 thousand ha area with production of thousand MT. Tomatos is grown in thousand hectare area with production of thousand MT in Rajasthan (Anonymous, ). Marketing of vegetable crops is quite complex and risky due to the perishable nature of the produce, seasonal production and bulkiness. The spectrum of prices from producer to consumer, which is an outcome of demand and supply of transactions between various intermediaries at different levels in the marketing system, is also unique for vegetables. Moreover, the marketing arrangements at different stages also play an important role in price levels at various stages viz. from farm gate to the ultimate user. The present study was undertaken to study price spread and efficiency in marketing of tomato. * Corresponding author s

2 MATERIALS AND METHODS Sampling framework: A sample of 50 tomato growing farmers from different land size categories was selected by probabibility proportion to number of farmers in each size group. Two vegetable markets of Jaipur, and Kota were selected purposively as these were nearby district markets. Five intermediaries each, from the commission agents, wholesalers and retailers were selected randomly, thus making a sample of 30 intermediaries from two markets (15 from each selected market). Vol. 48, No. 4, 2014 Analysis of data Marketable and marketed surplus: Marketable surplus was worked out by deducting the total quantity required for family consumption and farm needs from the total quantity available. MS = P C MS = Marketable surplus P = Total production C = Total requirement for family and farm Marketed surplus refers to actual quantity sold by the producer in the market. Marketing Cost: The marketing cost incurred by farmers was computed by using following formula: MCi = CGi + CPi + CTi + CCi + CMi MCi = Average marketing cost of i th vegetable crop ( /qtl.) CGi = Average cost of grading i th vegetable crop (/qtl.) CPi = Average cost of packing i th vegetable crop (/qtl.) CTi = Average cost of transporting i th vegetable crop (/qtl.) CCi = Average amount of commission paid for i th vegetable crop (qtl.) a) CMi = Average miscellaneous cost of i th vegetable crop (/qtl.) Absolute and per cent margin: Absolute margin = P Ri (P Pi + C Mi ) P Ri (P Pi + C Mi ) Per cent margin= x100 P Ri P Ri = Total value of receipts (sell price) P Pi = Total purchase value of goods (), and C Mi = Cost incurred in marketing Producer s share in : The producer s share in the was worked out as under: 295 P F P s = x100 P C P S = Producer s share in, P F = Price of the produce received by the farmer, and P C = Price of the produce paid by the consumer. Marketing efficiency: The modified marketing efficiency (MME) suggested by Acharya was worked out: RP MME= MC+ MM MME = Modified measure of marketing efficiency MC = Marketing cost MM = Marketing margin RP = Price paid by consumer Various constraints faced by farmers and intermediaries in production and marketing of selected vegetable crops were also studied. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Marketable and Marketed Surplus: Table-1 shows marketable and marketed surplus of tomato. From the table, it may be observed that qtl of tomato was produced by the sample households, of which qtl was the marketable surplus. Due to perishable nature of vegetable, the farmers did not stock tomato for sale in lean months. Therefore, there was no difference in marketable and marketed surplus of tomato. Marketing cost, Price spread and Marketing efficiency in Jaipur district: Two marketing channels were prevailing in the study area as under; Channel- I: Producer Commission agent cum wholesaler Retailer Consumer Channel- II:Producer village trader - Commission agent cum wholesaler Retailer Consumer Table-2 provides the marketing cost and margin for market functionaries involved in sale of tomato in channel- I. Marketing cost borne by producer was `90 per quintal. Net price received by farmer was 50.0 per cent of price paid by consumer. Average selling price of commission agent cum wholesaler agent was `800 per quintal and it was per cent of. The commi ssion agent cum wholesaler incurred marketing cost of ` The commission agent cum

Table reveals that efficiency was higher in channel- I, Hence, it was the most efficient market. Policy implications: Looking at quantum of the marketed surplus coupled with perishability of vegetables, every effort should be made by the policy makers to promote processing of vegetables for value addition and should also exploit export avenues from the state. Provision of cold storage facilities to the farmers at the village level and adequate refrigerated transport facilities for the smooth movement of vegetables from the places of production to the various consumption centers are some of the means suggested to improve the efficiency of marketing of vegetables in the state. This will help in reducing the wide gap prevailing between price paid by the
