Abstract:

Vegetables are seasonal crops and their supply in the town market is subjected numerous to natural vagaries. Further, due to their perishable nature, they have to be dispatched to market without delay. The supply of vegetable on one hand and the demand for them on the other, at a particular time and market, determines the price. The changes in these determinants over a period of a time will affect the price. High seasonality in prices is generally observed for vegetables. The magnitude of such seasonal fluctuation could be reduced by storing the vegetable for off-season sales. Further, the price spread of vegetables depends on the length of marketing channels and their marketing efficiency. The analysis of such seasonal and other components of time series data on wholesale prices of vegetables and price spread, marketing efficiency of different marketing channel of vegetable are very much important for the policy makers.
