Abstract:

The paper evaluated the conceptual framework, trend and constraints of the red gram value chain in Gulbarga district of Karnataka. The red gram value chain involves different actors/participants including commission agent, trader, processor, wholesaler and retailer. The methodology followed involves the sampling of primary data from the participants. A total sample of 80 farmers and 10 each of market intermediaries. The farmers individually sell their products either to commission agents or traders who were connected to the processors. Dal mills where value addition to red gram starts, produces dal, along with two other by-products i.e., bhusa and chunni, purchased by the animal feed manufacturing factories. The processed red gram sold to wholesalers, were marketed mainly to retailers and ultimately to consumers. Broken dal was sent to the local market to dispose at a lesser price. The identified constraints faced were ranked using Garrett ranking technique. The major constraints experienced by the farmers were low price at harvest and untimely payments. The major constraint faced by the commission agent as well as the traders was excessive price fluctuations. The constraints faced by processors/dal millers include cuts in power supply and labour availability problem. The major constraints faced by wholesalers and retailers were lack of adequate storage facilities and lack of adequate processing units.


Keywords: Garrett raking technique, Constraint, Red gram value chain, Price fluctuation and Non-payment
