VB Gholap, SN Patil and SR Benke
Present study was conducted to examine the arrivals and price behavior of tomato in the Gultekdi market Pune which was based on the secondary data from 2009-10 to 2018-19 and computed trends in area, production, productivity, prices and arrivals along with seasonal and cyclical variations. The results revealed that, there was an increasing trend in area, production and productivity of tomato in India during the study period. There was declining trend in area and production of tomato in Maharashtra however; productivity was increased significantly with the growth rate of 2.91 per cent. The monthly seasonal indices for arrivals were higher immediately after harvesting. The price indices were lower during peak arrivals months and vice versa. CV of real prices was found to be more than arrivals. For minimizing the price risk and to protect price security of farming community the long term procurement policy should be adopted to maintain price stability by declaring the MSP.
