The role of Agriculture Marketing is crucial in post harvest technology of agriculture production. In the absence of remunerative prices of the producers, agriculture production gets a setback. In view of this, the State Government acknowledged the importance of regulated markets so as to ensure fair return to the farmer. The Agriculture Marketing system needs to be strengthened, along with the measures for boosting the agriculture production so that the farmers may get reasonable price without delay and unauthorised deduction, of his produce. Efforts should be made to minimise the gap between the price received by the farmer for his produced and the cost paid by the consumer.
To achieve above objectives the Government promulgated Rajasthan Agriculture Produce Market Act in the year 1961 which came into force in the year 1964.
