Abstract:
The study was undertaken to assess the cost and profitability measures of the okra growers in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh. Overall average size of holding of the farmers was estimated 1.34 ha. Only marginal, small and medium farmers were found in the study area with average size of land holding of 0.45 ha, 1.46 ha and 2.94 ha, respectively. The study exhibited that cost of cultivation and gross return were more on medium farms i.e. Rs. 82344.92 and Rs. 190905.00 as compared to small Rs. 75917.95 and Rs. 182325.00 and marginal farms Rs. 70274.92 and Rs. 178035.00. While net income and cost-benefit ratio were more on marginal farms i.e. Rs. 100732.59 and 1:2.30 in comparison with small farms Rs. 98815.26 and 1:2.18 and medium farms Rs. 100325.59 and 1:2.11. The result of the study revealed that the okra cultivation was more profitable to marginal farms. Okra cultivation revealed that this crop is suitable for doubling the income of the farmers of the study area.
