Market Yard

Market Yards are a long felt need of the farming community of our country as it goes a long way in ensuring higher remuneration to them through proper weighing, cleaning, grading and better price realisation of their produce.

The farmers look forward to a regulated market yard as a dependable infrastructure for furtherance of their economic goal. The advantages of a regulated market yard system are immense and wherever such a system exists, it has been widely appreciated. Today the farmers consider it as a boon to them where they can confidently sell their produce and get an appropriate return for the quantity and quality they produce year after year. However, the development of regulated market yard infrastructure in our country is very lop sided and its progress is satisfactory only in a few states like Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Punjab. In all other states it is quite inadequate. The inadequacy of agricultural marketing infrastructure in other states need urgent attention. Even in states where such an infrastructure exists much more needs to be done to provide suitable facilities to the farmers and arrange for a proper information dissemination system to prevent their exploitation. There is a need for coordination among all the developmental agencies responsible for creation of market yard infrastructure in a state for drawing a programme and a time bound action plan for creation of regulated market yard systems. At present , market yards can be established as regulated market yards under Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee (APMC) Act of individual states.
