Abstract:
Karnataka district is famous for Maize production and industrial glucose extraction as well. Both the districts are interlinked together in northern and southern districts and it is easy to get full-fledged information about the complete supply chain. Totally 280 samples were selected for the survey, of which 120 maize farmers, 60 commission agents, 60 traders and 20 processing units and 20 buyers. The supply chain of Maize starts with Farmers, then it’s linked to commission agent followed by traders, processing units and buyers. The commission agents play a very important positive role in connecting the maize famers and traders to sell their produce. The price spread worked out for the above said channel indicated that the price spread was Rs. 927.15/q, and Rs. 739.54/q of maize. Technical efficiency and Scale efficiency of supply chain in Northern and Southern Karnataka the mean technical efficiency of supply chains of maize in northern and southern Karnataka were ranged from 81.00 to 97.20 percent and 92.70 to 85.70 percent respectively. The technical efficiency was higher in southern Karnataka maize supply chains, because e- tender market is performing well in south Karnataka simultaneously increase control over the quality, supply reliability and price stability. An added advantage of this models was that it provided flexibility and better understanding between the farmers and commission agents for value addition like drying and better packing reduced wastage better volume of flexibility to processing units leads to improved supply chain practices.
