Abstract:This paper examines spatial and temporal aspects of marketing efficiency for the traditional marketing system for millet and sorghum in part of northern Nigeria. Analysis of these price relationships in many cases indicate excessive intermarket and seasonal price increases. Some reasons are given for these excessive intermarket and seasonal price increases. The evidence suggests these cases of excessive increases are not a result of planned manipulation under monopolistic or monopsonistic conditions, but result from imperfections inherent in the system: some suggestions are made for improving marketing performance.
