Abstract
The present investigation was undertaken with a view to studying the effect of contract farming on the production and price of barley in the state of Rajasthan. Primary data were collected for the agricultural year 2010–11. The secondary data were collected from the records maintained by the contracting firm and regulated markets of the study area. The results of the study revealed that the production of main product of barley on contract farms was higher by 14.40 per cent and the by-product was lower by 0.02 per cent than that on non-contract farms. The average selling prices of the main product was higher by 7.35 per cent and that of by-product was lower by 3.36 per cent on contract farms than on non-contract farms. The remarkable difference between the system was due to higher prices provided by the contracting firm to contract farmers, on the one hand, and lower prices in the market for non-contract farmers.
