Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out to study constraints experienced by onion market intermediary’s viz. wholesealer, retailer and exporter in Nashik district of Maharashtra state. Opinion survey was conducted to elicit the opinions, 5 wholesealers, 9 retailers and 5 exporters, regarding the constraints in marketing and export of onion. Garett’s Ranking Technique was applied for ranking these constraints. The major constraints analysed by the wholesealer and retailer in marketing of onion were high marketing charges/taxes (77.20) and poor infrastructure (73.40) respectively. Onion is export worthy commodity and exporter faced several constraints during export. Export policy uncertainty (MEP or subsidy) was found major constraint experienced by exporters with garret mean score of 82.00. The finding of the study indicate that there is need to call from Government and policy makers to pay attention on effective planning that would overcome the constraints experienced by intermediaries in marketing of onion.
