Contract farming in tomato: An economic analysis

The globalisation of Indian agriculture in recent years has resulted in the need for the production of export-oriented quality products having competitive advantage. To fulfill the commitment of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the recent dismantling of the system of quantitative restrictions (QRs) on imports by the Union Government has provoked new challenges to the Indian farmers to compete in the world market. The horticulture sector provides a sound platform for establishment of agro-processing industries to help enhance exports by allowing diversification and value addition of agricultural produce.
