How multiple cropping help farmers to avoid the Risk arising due to fluctuations in market prices?explain in detail with example.

Growing more than one crop on a particular piece of land is referred as multiple cropping. A farmer hedges the risk of fluctuations in market prices through multiple cropping because if the price of one crop which the farmer has grown falls in the market, then he will not face a major reduction in his profits as he can sell other crops at their normal market price.

For example, if a farmer is growing wheat, bajra and rice on the piece of land available to him, he can avoid the risk of falling prices of any particular item among them due to the presence of the stock of other crops which can be sold in the market at normal prices.
