Abstract

Agricultural Produce Market Committee ensures that farmers are not exploited by intermediaries who compel farmers to sell their produce at the farm gate for an extremely low price. All food produce should first be brought to a market yard and then sold through auction. Over a period of time, these markets have acquired the status of restrictive and Monopolistic markets, harming the farmers rather than helping them to realize remunerative prices. We need to develop an application to ensure transparency between farmers and merchants. In this regards this application will provide the important information about agricultural products to merchants and updates of rates of the grains. This application is centralized as farmers can interact with APMC directly with this application in main hub. Farmers can also get updated rates and merchant information in this application. Most of the time farmer cannot contact to merchants directly to sell their products. They contact to middle men which leads to loss. This application provides direct communication between farmer and merchant.
