India is the largest producer of fruits and vegetables (F&V) in the world.
In India, the share of F&V in Gross Cropped Area increased, but productivity growth decelerated over the period of time.
Along with deceleration in the productivity growth, F&V face several problems in marketing.
Some of these include inadequate infrastructure facilities.
As a result, there has been significant concern in the recent years to enhance the efficiency in production and marketing of F&V crops in India.
Therefore, this study examine the trends and patterns in F&V crops across states in India with a focus on Tamil Nadu.
It also measure technical efficiency (TE) of farm households in F&V and determinants of technical inefficiency.
It identify the existing marketing channels for F&V crops and measure marketing efficiency based on the estimates of price spread under major channels.
Further it examine the factors that influence farmers’ participation in selected marketing channels for F&V.
The study analyse marketing efficiency by testing Asymmetric Price Transmission (APT) in a vertical market system for selected F&V crops.
Finally the study provides policy suggestions based on findings.
