Agriculture Marketing Agriculture Export Zones in Madhya Pradesh

Madhya Pradesh has witnessed rapid modernization and expansion of marketing systems in agriculture sector in recent past. A network of 241 Mandis or agri-produce trading yards,273 sub-Mandis and over thousand weekly markets provide multiple opportunities in agri-business.

Commercially viable crops like Niger, sugarcane, groundnut, sunflower, paddy, potato, tomato, onion, garlic, chillies, coriander and other vegetables and medicinal flora have high market value export-potential. The Mandi Board has brought the process of agri-business policy reforms to a logical conclusion, e.g.

  • 1. Single license system, which has also enabled Spot Exchanges to (spot) trade using electronic platform;
  • 2. contract farming;
  • 3. exemption of Mandi fee for crops like paddy used for Basmati rice production, on perishables purchased within the state and used as raw material by the industries established in the Food Parks, and perishables purchased from outside the state and used as raw material by the industries established outside Food Parks electronic weighing machines, etc. have contributed to building up a robust agri- marketing network. Besides, procurement of agri-produce having medicinal value has started in Mandis of Indore, Bhopal and Jabalpur, Mandsaur, Neemuch and Chhindwara Mandis. Trading infrastructure in Mandis has been scaled up. Soil testing laboratories have been established in 26 Mandis of district headquarters. Application software has been developed for Mandis to help them maintain electronic records of daily accounts. Cer tification of organically grown produces will start soon.
