This study intends to identify the relationships between different types of actors within the agricultural ecosystem and also to have an understanding about their cash flow patterns and their savings, expenditure, and investment behavior. All the information has been derived from questionnaire survey (with farmers as the respondents) and in-depth interviews with market actors associated with the selected value chains and geographic boundaries.
