Abstract

This paper analyses the performance of the value chain of Lakadong turmeric in the northeastern state of Meghalaya. It assesses the activities, value added, and prices received at each stage of the product’s journey, from farming by producers to sale to consumers. The powdered form of Lakadong turmeric fetched a higher price, but farmers and processors sold their produce in the form of dry flakes because proper processing units, like dryers and grinders, are lacking. Many opportunities have been identified, and tapping these would prove useful in processing turmeric and generating employment in Meghalaya.
