This study examines factors affecting cauliflower post-harvest losses at farm level in Surat district of Gujarat. Key factors which contribute to post harvest losses of cauliflower have been examined. Using survey method sample data were collected from 120 cauliflower growers from 12 villages. Multiple regression analysis was run to determine the predictors (independent variables) that contribute to fresh produce PHL. The critical concerns for the cause of post-harvest losses at producer level were; damage during harvest, damaged due to diseases, damages due to insect, damage during transportation lack of proper cleaning and washing showed a positive relationship between each independent variable and the dependent variable. In order to reduce the post-harvest losses, farmers have to concentrate on reducing the above major critical concerns. This shows that the these variables were having significant effect on the level of PHL of fresh produce.
