The data were collected from both primary and secondary sources. The primary data for this study were collected from 127 farmers, 17 traders and 22 consumers through application of appropriate statistical procedures.

On marketing side, limited access to market, low price of product, lack of storage, lack of transport and low quality of product are the major problems. The multinomial logit model results indicated that the probability to choose the collector outlet was significantly affected by Land, Market price of sesame, Membership to any Cooperatives, Credit Access, and Owning Transport Facility compared to wholesale outlet. Similarly, the probability of choosing cooperatives marketing outlet was affected by land and Quantity of sesame produced compared to wholesale outlet.
