Abstract:

Ahmednagar district is selected for present studies. The price of agricultural commodities assumes great significance from producer’s as well as consumer’s point of view. It is said that prices are mirror of economy of the country. The purpose of the present study is to examine the behaviour of fluctuations in prices and arrivals of Sorghum, Tur, Soybean, Chickpea and Bajra which are selected for study in APMC market in of Ahmednagar district. In Ahmednagar market arrivals of different agricultural products are in good quantity as compared to other markets. This market was selected due to the availability of continuous time series data for the research period. Five agricultural commodities are selected for present study i.e. from the sorghum, Tur, Soybean, Chickpea and Bajra. It was intended to collect for 12 years data from all four APMC of Ahmednagar district for selected agricultural commodities (2005-06 to 2016-17). The analysis of compound growth rate reveals that the growth rates of arrival and prices of overall period was positive and significant. In Ahmednagar APMC the highest growth rates were noticed in the soybean i.e. 161.82 per cent and lowest growth rate were noticed in the Bajra i.e. -32.24 per cent per year. In Karjat APMC the highest growth rates were noticed in the Sorghum i.e. 0.46 per cent and lowest growth rate were noticed in the Bajra i.e. -32.71 per cent per year, respectively. The prices of Sorghum, Tur, Soybean, Chickpea and Bajra increased significantly during the period under study. The inverse relationship between arrivals and prices was noticed for Sorghum, Tur, Soybean, Chickpea and Bajra which indicated that the increase in arrivals lowered the prices of these commodities.
