An attempt has been made in the present paper to examine the marketing aspects of cabbage crops in Bemetara district of Chhattisgarh. Hundred farmers were selected randomly from ten villages from Bemetara district. The major findings revealed that there were three marketing channels of cabbage, Channel-I: Producer-Consumer, Channel-II: Producer-Itinerants (kochia)-Consumer, and Channel-Ill: Producer-Commission agent-Retailer-Consumer. Price received by cabbage producer was 585, 465 and 498 per quintal in Channel-I, Channel-II and Channel-Ill respectively. Net price received by cabbage producers was Rs.535 per quintal in Channel-I 465 per quintal in Channel-II and 436 per quintal in Channel-Ill. Marketing cost paid by producers by an amount of Rs. 50 and Rs. 62 in Channel-I and III. The study also reveals that the lack of storage facilities (72.00 percent) was reported as the most important constraints faced by vegetables growers.
