Abstract
This paper aims to examine the marketed and marketable surplus and its determinants based on field survey of100 farmers. The main findings revealed that the per farm marketable and marketed surplus of traditional paddy was observed 59.46 and 57.19 per cent, respectively whereas, per hectare was observed 47.60 and 45.75 per cent, respectively. The per farm, marketable and marketed surplus of improved paddy was observed 57.41 and 54.58 per cent, respectively whereas; per hectare was observed 50.52 and 48.00, per cent respectively. Marketable surplus and marketed surplus was lower due to higher quantity used as payment in kind, seed and familyconsumption. The regression coefficients were positive and statistically significant on different size of farms inboth crops indicating that the factors considered explain 84 to 99 percent of the variation in depndent variable.
