Abstract

The present study aims to conduct an economic analysis of production and marketing of pearl millet in Jaipur district of Rajasthan.  Price spreads in channels I and II were 525 and 660 rupees per quintal, respectively. For channel I, the producer's share of the consumer's rupee was 73.94, and for channel II, it was 70.11%. The marketing effectiveness of channel I was 4.35 percent, and channel II was 3.50 percent. High labour costs, high PFC chemical costs, etc., as well as frequent price changes, a lack of storage space, high transportation costs, a lack of knowledge about government programmes and subsidies, high commission fees, etc., were barriers to the marketing of pea millet.
