dc.description.abstract Farmers and consumers believe that middlemen of the vegetable marketing channels earn higher percentage of profits than vegetable famers. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to investigate profit distribution pattern of vegetable farmers and middlemen in Sri Lanka. Five selected vegetables and five most common vegetable marketing channels were chosen for the study. Data were collected from three hundred and eight farmers and middlemen. The results of the study enabled to make a clear and generalized conclusion alleging that the profit distribution pattern pertaining to the vegetable marketing in Sri Lanka has uneven nature through which all intermediaries earn supper normal profits than vegetable farmers. Authorities have to pay attention to eliminate the unfair situation faced by the farmers in yielding profit shares. en
