Agriculture has played a significant role in India's history, serving as the largest employer in the country. However, farmers face challenges in profiting from their surplus due to the lack of a reliable and open agricultural marketing system. The liberalization of the current commercial environment is essential for farmers to benefit from rising consumer demand. With India's agricultural industry experiencing growth and change, it has become crucial to examine the state of the agricultural marketing system in Telangana State. This article aims to shed light on the challenges faced by buyers and sellers, assess the long-term potential of the sector since the post-independence era, and provide recommendations for expansion and increased productivity.
India's economy heavily relies on its agricultural industry, which boasts the world's second-highest output of agricultural goods. Consequently, the efficiency and output of agriculture significantly impact the overall health of the Indian economy. Marketing fresh produce plays a vital role in the agriculture sector. However, Indian agricultural producers encounter difficulties in marketing and selling their products due to complex distribution channels and market-based malpractices.
To assist farmers, Agricultural Product Marketing Committees (APMCs) were established to provide resources and protect their interests. These committees oversee the marketplaces in accordance with the APMC statute. This article explores farmers' perspectives on the effectiveness of price information usage by agriculturalists, their understanding and perception of the APMC legislation, and the limitations they face when selling various commodities.
