Improvement In Consumer And Farmers Relationship in Vegetable Market Through Mobile Application

Authors(2) :-Malathi P, Dr. P. Senthil Pandian

India is one of the world’s biggest producers of vegetables but its share in the global horticulture market is insignificant. The fragmented supply chain and inadequate health, safety and quality mechanisms (means the quantity and quality of vegetables) often do not meet the demands of high-end or international markets. Moreover, Indian farmers receive less than a fifth of the end price for the vegetables they produce, while a long line of middlemen, transporters, wholesalers and retailers get the rest. So, the aim behind developing this app is to give India’s huge farming community a fair and consistent price for their produce. Using this android based app “Improvement In Consumer And Farmers Relationship in Vegetable Market Through Mobile Application”, will help some of the farmers to overcome this problem. Using these app farmers can directly connect with the end users and supply the product directly to them. This will increase the profit of the farmers and also end users can get good quality product in fewer prices as they will directly buy from farmers
