Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken with a view to studying the yield and price uncertainties involved in the production of bottle gourd under contract farming of bottle gourd in the Jaipur district of Rajasthan. The contracting firm ROCL Ltd. was selected, as it was only contracting firm in the Bassi tehsil which was engaged in the contract farming related to cucurbits and other vegetables. A list of 26 villages having contract farming in bottle gourd was obtained from the tehsil headquarter. From that list three villages were selected randomly. From these villages, 30 contract farmers were selected randomly and 20 non-contract farmers resembling to the contract farmers except contract component were also selected to make a comparative study of the contract farming vis-à-vis non-contract farming. Primary data were collected for the agricultural year 2015-16. The conventional budgeting technique and multiple regression functions were used to analyze the data. The production and price uncertainty ratio and coefficient of variation were lower on contract farms than that on non-contract farms indicating that the uncertainty on contract farms was less as compared to non-contract farms.
