Protected Cultivation of Capsicum in Haryana


Dalip Kumar Bishnoi, Jitender Kumar Bhatia and Shiv Prakash



The study revealed that producers obtained maximum share in consumer rupee from direct marketing of capsicum i.e. more than 90 per cent which may be due to non-existence of market intermediaries between producers and consumers. Whereas least share in consumers rupee were observed in Channel-IV(Distant market) i.e. less than 50 percent which may due to large number of middlemen involved in marketing chain of capsicum. As far as marketing efficiency was concerned, Channel – I (Producer – Consumer) was found most efficient among all other prevailing marketing channels in the study area. Lack of poly house/ crop insurance schemes to mitigate the risk arising due to damage of structure/ crop (84.00 per cent), followed by attack of insect – pest as well as nematodes (80.00 per cent), supply of inferior poly-house materials/lack of advice from service providers (80.00 per cent) were found most prominent constraints in the production of capsicum under poly house, whereas, lack of market information about prices and demand in different markets (80.67 per cent), non-remunerative prices of produce (76.00 per cent) were observed some of the marketing constraints. Keeping in view all the aspects, there is need to provide more support to realize full potential by development of efficient market infrastructure, providing liberal financial support at lower interest rate. Poly house enterprises should be treated as agricultural rather than commercial entity
