An attempt has been made in this study to examine the economic analysis of disposal pattern of soybean in Bastar Plateau of Chhattisgarh state. The study was conducted in Tokapal and Lohandiguda blocks in Bastar district of Chhattisgarh state. Twenty three soybean farmers were selected randomly from ten villages from these blocks to collect the required information on the disposal pattern, post harvest losses and other aspects for the present study. The primary data was collected from the soybean producers through personal interview method with the help of well prepared schedule and questionnaire for the production and post harvest year for kharif. The objectives were achieved using average and percentages analyses. The average marketable surplus of soybean is found to be 4.86 quintal constituting 90.81 per cent to the total quantity produced. Three types of market intermediaries are prevailing in the study area. Most of the soybean growers sold their about 32.22 per cent, 48.04 per cent, 49.70 per cent and 43.59 per cent produce through village traders at small, medium, large and average farms respectively. The average price received from wholesalers was observed as Rs. 3600.00 per quintal at small, Rs. 3605.00 per quintal at medium and Rs. 3620.00 per quintal at large farm respectively. It may be mentioned, though, the quantity of soybean sold per farm was very less which was mainly due to very low productivity. Therefore, urgent attention must be paid toward enhancing the productivity of soybean by improved and high yielding varieties, technology, irrigation, marketing, FPO (Farmer Product Organization building policy for marketing) and price support and effective extension.
