Abstract:
Beans belong to the family Leguminosae. They are considered as nutritious vegetables as they contain high amounts of vegetable proteins besides carbohydrates and vitamins. In India beans are grown in almost all the states. The major beans producing belts are Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Orissa and Punjab. Karnataka is one of the important state producing beans. The major districts producing beans in Karnataka are Belgaum, Dharwar, Bijapur, Hassan, Mysore, Kolar and Bangalore rural. There is regular supply of beans in the market. In view of this an attempt is made to study arrivals and prices of beans in Bangalore rural. The study is based on secondary data. It is collected from the records of the Raitharasanthe market, Yelahanka, Bengalore rural. Raitharsanthe is the first farmers market established in 2002 in Karnataka. The time period is between 2014 to 2016 across a period of 36 months. Simple statistical tools i.e., Pearson's correlation method were used to analyze the relationship between arrivals and price of beans. It is understood that the arrivals were at their peak during September, November, and July. Next peak of arrival were in the months of August and October. The lowest arrivals were observed in the months of April, January and May. The months of high arrivals incidence were obviously associated with the low prices in the market under study. Similarly, the incidence of lower arrivals was associated with the high prices in the market. This clearly indicates that the operation of law of demand in the market, attributing to seasonality of perishable commodities.
