Agricultural marketing (AGS - FAO)

Summary
Improvement of marketing systems for both farm produce and inputs in developing countries and the emerging economies necessitates a strong private sector backed up by appropriate policy frameworks and effective government support services. Such services can include provision of market infrastructure, supply of market information, and agricultural extension services able to advise farmers on marketing. In addition, governments need to ensure that the legislative and regulatory environment is suitable for competitive and efficient private-sector marketing. Training in marketing at all levels is also needed; from farmers groups to post-graduate students at universities.
