Abstract:

Within horticulture, vegetable production is considered important for agricultural development and the economy of the country as it generates more income and employment and promotes equity when marketing is done rightly. The present study was undertaken to examine the trends, relationship, as well as seasonal fluctuations in arrivals and prices of selected vegetables in Baijnath, regulated market of district Kangra in Himachal Pradesh for the year2010-11 to 2015-16. The analysis shows that the rate of increase in the monthly arrivals is highest for cauliflower whereas for monthly prices it is highest for ladyfinger. The prices of vegetables move contrary to arrivals i.e. prices increased with decreasing arrivals in the market hence negatively correlated. The average monthly variability in arrivals and prices was found the maximum for cucumber and ladyfinger, respectively. The study of seasonal fluctuations in arrivals and prices showed that arrivals of most of the vegetables were higher in the peak season and lower in the lean season. The correlation coefficient calculated from different market prices of vegetables showed that study market was highly integrated with Kangra market for most of the vegetables.
