Abstract

The price volatility of agricultural commodities poses widespread uncertainty among farmers and consumers, especially in developing countries like India, and is continuing to be the major challenge among the researchers and policy makers because of its devastating effects on sustainable farming, particularly the small and marginal farmers and food and nutritional security, particularly the poor consumers. Moreover, India is predominantly an agriculture-based country in which agriculture and allied activities contributes about 17 percent to the country’s GVA and provides employment to about 55 percent of the population. On one hand, the consumers want low affordable price of the produce, whereas the farmers want high and remunerative price. Therefore, the government is continuously facing the problem of achieving its twin objectives of ensuring remunerative prices for farmers and affordable prices for consumers.
