Abstract

Farmers consult ‘dealers’ for taking information pertaining to agriculture and allied aspects.
The study conducted on 50 dealers in Himachal Pradesh has revealed that ‘Economic Price’ and
‘Brand image’ were the two prominent factors responsible for their decision to purchase a particular
brand of spray oil. A majority of them had preferred 5 litre or 20 litre packing of spray oil. ‘Lack
of adequate awareness about the spray oil through advertisement’, ‘No regular visits of Sales
Officers’, ‘Inadequate staff’ and ‘No credit facilities to the dealers by the company’ etc. were
some of the main problems encountered by the dealers in the marketing of HPCL spray oil in the
Himachal Pradesh.
