Abstract:

Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) is a often cross-pollinated, diploid, grain. It is the fourth most important food legume in the world after dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), field pea (Pisum sativum) and chickpea (Cicer arientinum L.) The present study on marketing cost, marketing margin and price spread of pigeonpea was conducted in Latur market. For the present study different marketing channels, marketing margins, price spread and producers share in consumer’s rupee were calculated. The study was conducted for the year 2017-2018 in Latur market. Maximum percentage of produce of pigeonpea was sold through Channel–III. Producer share in consumer’s rupee was maximum in Channel-III (96.78 per cent) and minimum in Channel-II (95.79 per cent). The results revealed that quantity of pigeonpea as 0.42, 3.09 and 5.23 quintals were marketed through channel-I, channel-II, and channel-III, respectively, Thus total marketed surplus of pigeonpea 8.74 quintals, respectively. Non availability of labour at time of harvesting, Attack of pest and disease, Lack of knowledge about improved practices, High rate of inputs, Weed problem were major constraints of pigeonpea growers.
