Harmonic analysis was used to detect the presence of a 12 months' cycle and a long term cycle in the arrival and price series of jowar markets in India. Trigonometric functions were used to discover the periodicities present in the price and arrival series of jowar in the Gadag and Hubli markets. Monthly modal data on price and arrivals for the period 1970 to 1978 (Hubli) and 1956 to 1978 (Gadag) were subjected to time series analysis. The Gadag and Hubli markets were found to require 17 and 11 days respectively for adjusting to price variations. Time lag reflects the imperfections in the market conditions
