Abstract

Banana is a nutritious fruit and leads all other fruits in food value. It is rich in carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. Economic importance of banana over other fruits is that it is perennial and a regular source of income for growers. There is low productivity of banana in Pakistan compared to other developing countries, mainly because of poor management practices and post-harvest losses. Keeping in view the importance of banana this study has been planned to the existing production and marketing system, identify the technical and socioeconomic constraints in production and marketing system; to quantify the market margins of producers and other market intermediaries; and assess ways and means to improve the producer’s share and consumer’s surplus; to develop policy recommendations for efficient production and marketing system to safeguard the interests of producers as well as consumers and to identify the major constraints in banana cultivation and marketing system in Lasbella District. According to the study results the growers received 4533, 5160, 4638 and 4455kgs yield per acre and sale price was Rs. 35.12, 36.08, 35.6 & 36.5 perkg in Bella, Uthal, Winder and Hub tehsils respectively. The cost of production of banana crop was Rs. 117474, 119132, 99146 and 111650 per acre and gross revenue obtained was Rs. 159199, 186173, 165113 and 162608 per acre in Bella, Uthal, Winder and Hub tehsils respectively whereas, banana grower’s received net income was Rs. 41725, 67040, 65966 and 50958per acre in Bella, Uthal, Winder and Hub tehsils respectively.
