In a Country like India with 70% of its population living in the villages according to Census report 2011 and depending on agriculture as their main occupation, accurate and timely information about the market prices of the agricultural commodities is of extreme significance. Agricultural Marketing in India is undergoing a significant metamorphosis because of economic liberalization and globalization. Advancement in communication and information technology has made the world a smaller place and a larger market at one go.
The availability of prompt and reliable market information about what is happening in the market i.e. what quantities are arriving and what prices are quoted for different commodities considerably improve the decision making capability of the farmers and strengthens their bargaining power.
At present, the information is disseminated through various media like radio, newspapers, blackboard display and public address system at market yards. The information provided by these methods is stale and does not help the farmers sufficiently in taking decisions in marketing their produce. The farmers are also not able to know about the prices prevailing in other markets, as the Market Committees are able to disseminate information only in respect of their own markets. The farmers are, therefore, left with no alternative but to dispose of their produce in the nearest market, even at uneconomic prices.
Market information is equally needed by other market participants in arriving at optimal trading decisions. To fully utilize the new emerging trade opportunities for the benefit of farming community, agriculture marketing information system in the country needs to be strengthened and Information and Communication Technology has a vital role to play in the process.
