Augmented Dickey Fuller (ADF) test is used to ascertain whether the variables are exact order of integration. Cointegration technique is used to examine the validity of the market integration hypothesis with reference to prices of rubber in Kerala. After cointegration test, Error Correction Model (ECM) is used to identify the market prices of peripheral price on main market price and vice versa. The analysis shows a strong evidence of an existence of market integration in rubber price during the post-reform period. Moreover, the price changes of rubber were transmitted from the peripheral to the main market and vice versa during the reform period.
