The study was conducted in Southern Haryana. The study used farm level data collected from 60 randomly selected farmers using sprinkler irrigation in mustard crop from two selected districts namely Mahendergarh and Bhiwani. From each selected district two blocks from each district were selected i.e. Mahendergarh and Kanina blocks from district Mahendergarh, and Kairu and Bahal blocks were selected from district Bhiwani. From each block, one villagewas selected randomly. Further, 15 farmers were selected randomly.The overall variable and total cost incurred for cultivation of mustard accounted for Rs. 31583and Rs. 60625, respectively. The B:C ratio over total cost in Mahendregarh, bhiwani and overall were 1.47, 1.35 and 1.41, respectively. The results of Cobb-Douglas production function indicated thatMVP ofinputs whose regression coefficients were found statistically significant in mustard production function was compared with their respective unit price. Irregular supply of electricity is the most important constraint in sprinkler irrigation, reportedby the farmers with total weighted score of 264.Heavy initial investment, less efficiency of the sprinkler due to high wind velocity and declining water table were the II, III and IV ranks of the constraints, respectively.
