Abstract:

The current study focused on how the production, productivity, and paddy yield affected by the MSP and to find out the extent of participation in markets by paddy growers. In developing countries like India, most smallholder farmers are characterized by poor market participation because they lack market information on paddy marketing. Despite paddy market value, its market participation has not been fully studied and quantified results in poor prices among small-scale farmers. The multistage sampling procedure was employed to contact 170 respondents. Semi-structured questionnaires were used to collect data from small-scale paddy farmers through face to face interview. The data were analysed using the descriptive statistics, Heckman two-stage selection model and Multinomial Logit model. SPSS and STATA computer programs were used to process the data. The results showed that age, gender, education level, and paddy yield significantly influenced the decision to participate in paddy marketing. Further, gender, group marketing, paddy yields, price information, marketing under contract and vehicle ownership significantly influenced the choice of paddy marketing outlets. The study recommends that, for holistic market participation among paddy farmers, proper market infrastructure. The government and other policymakers should increase the marketing information and ability of paddy farmers through avenues.
