Abstract:
An experiment was laid at the experimental farm of Udai Pratap Autonomous College, Bhojubeer-Varanasi, during winter season of 2016-2017. The economic analysis of tomato production, grown in Varanasi region showed net capital investment varied with different treatments. Results revealed that among the different organic nutrient sources, T6 (PM: 10 t poultry manure ha-1) registered highest net return followed by T5 (7.5 t PM ha-1). Lowest net return was observed with treatment T7 (VC: 2.5 t vermicompost ha-1). Crop alimentation of tomato by supplying 10 t PM ha-1 recorded highest benefit -cost ratio (3.39) among the organic sources. While, within organic and inorganic sources; application of RDF of NPK through chemical fertilizer recorded quite lesser benefit- cost ratio (3.36) than organically nurtured tomato i. e. T6 (3.39).
