how does cooperative marketing helps in realising fair price for farmers products
The basic aims of cooperative marketing societies is to arrange for proper marketing of agricultural produce of the farmers at reasonable prices. They function as a bridge between producers and consumers and eliminate the need for other middle men (such as land lords). In this way, it protects the farmers from the exploitative practices of the middlemen (such as use of improper weights, under hand dealings, etc.). Proper organisation of the markets through such societies prohibits the use of such fraudulent practices and ensure that farmers receive a fair price for their produce.
