In Haryana state, Bhiwani and Mohindergarh districts were purposively selected on the basis of the highest area and production under pearl millet crop, so most of Pearl Millet produce is marketed in these markets. In the study it was observed that producer share in consumer rupee was found maximum in the channel-III followed by channel–II and minimum in channel-I, because number of intermediaries in channel-I were more (P-VT-W-R-C). Each intermediary was having margin within the channel due to this producer share in consumer rupee increased in channel-III (P-C) followed by channel-II (P-W-R-C) and channel-I (P-VT-W-R-C) in the selected districts. It was found that the price spread was maximum in channel-I (P-VT-W-R-C) followed by channel-II (P-W-R-C) and was minimum in channel-III (P-C) in both the districts.

Key words: Pearl millet, Price spread, Consumer, Channel, Intermediary, Margin.
