The present study is based on economic analysis of paddy production with the objective to work out the consumption pattern of agrochemicals, cost and returns of kharif paddy in the study area. The major findings of this study revealed that on an average, the consumption of agrochemicals of kharif paddy (variety-MTU-1010) was calculated as use of insecticide was higher in case of Imidacloprid 17.8% SL (-18.61 per cent) followed by Acephate 75% SP (-63.71 per cent) and lowest in Deltamethrin 1%+ Triazophos 35% EC (-90.19 percent), herbicide gap was higher in case of Oxadirzil (-26.51 per cent) followed by Pyrozosulphuran + Ethyl 10% WP  (-33.84) and lowest in Pendimethylene  ‐(-81.25 per cent), fungicide was higher in case of Propiconazole 25% EC (-34.18 per cent) followed by Tricyclazole (-60.13 per cent) and lowest in Carbendazim 12% +Mancozeb 63%WP (-78.39 per cent)  and fertilizers gap was higher in case of nitrogen (-5.64 per cent) followed by phosphorus (-9.32 per cent) and potash (-25.52 per cent). Overall, on an average the per hectare cost of cultivation of kharif paddy (variety- MTU-1010) was calculated as Rs. 34028.99, on an average yield of kharif paddy was observed for (variety -MTU-1010) 38.59 quintals and average cost of production per quintal of kharif paddy for variety- MTU-1010 was Rs. 882.11. The input-output ratio was kharif paddy for variety- MTU-1010 was 1:1.84.

 

Keywords: Paddy, economic analysis, input wise cost of cultivation, net rupees per rupee of investment, cost concepts, measures of farm profit.
