Background/ Objectives: This study investigated market integration and asymmetric price transmission in the potato markets for the seven major Potato markets, i.e., Okara, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Lahore, Gujranwala, Multan, and Rawalpindi in the province of Punjab, Pakistan. Methods/Statistical analysis: The study estimated the data by using the Johansen Co-integration (JJ) technique, vector error correction model, and Vector autoregressive (VAR) model. Findings: The empirical results show as major Potato markets are integrated, i.e., there exist the law of one price. These findings also supported the results of the Granger causality analysis. The results of pairwise granger casualty show the direction of price transmission between the selected Potato markets in Punjab, Pakistan. Application: These results suggest for market integration and competition rather than collusion in Potato markets in Punjab, Pakistan, and provide little justification for government intervention designed to improve competitiveness or to enhance market efficiency.
