Agricultural Marketing


The market is an important social and economic system that ties the circulation of production, distribution, consumption and abandonment
of food. The way how the market exists greatly influences production
of food, development of rural regions and safe food consumption.
Therefore, we do research on the market from the socio-economic
view to solve the food and rural problems.
