About the Book

Agriculture occupies animportant place in the economy of North-East India.More than half of the total workforce is engagedin it. A serious constraint for agricultural development is itsunfavourable topography and geographical isolation from mainland, India, which leadsto lack of communication infrastructures. This has reduced market access by the farmers for their produce.As such, the scenario of agriculture marketing in most of the states is generallyunorganised in nature wherenetworks of intermediaries are at work. Consequently, limited market access remainsto bethe main hurdle for agriculture development.

The book focusses on the existing marketing system of agriculture and allied products in the region, takingthe state of Mizoram as a case. It presents an overview of the marketing institutions, stakeholders, and value chains of the agriculture and allied products in Mizoram. The book may enhance the decision making processthat enables the emergence of organised and more efficient marketing intervention policy in the region.
