Abstract:

The study conducted in the state of Bihar has examined, the quantity losses other than consumption for lentil crop amongst different farm size groups. It has found that at overall level 46.91 percent of the total lentil crop produced was available as marketable surplus. At the overall level study finds about 19.56 percent of the total lentil produce goes wastage as seed, feed, and wastage however only 80.44 percent available for consumption purpose. In the backward state like Bihar where a significant percentage of population under malnutrition and hardly get recommended level of protein to the people. If the wastage ratio managed addition of pulse quantum in food basket may be increased. The government needs to develop appropriate strategies for reducing the wastages under seed, feed and post losses. The net availability of crop may be increases through proper management of losses under seed, feed and wastage.
