Abstract:
An exploratory study was conducted on marginal farmer of Tuta Village, Raipur district of Chhattisgarh during the Rabi season 2016-17 to examine the effect of different irrigation methods, planting methods, size of seedling on the production efficiency evaluating the economic returns of marketable yield of Onion (<em>Allium</em> <em>cepa</em> L.). The study was conducted on the judgmental sampling of sampling size (N=80) farmers. The R x R and P x P spacing of 30 x 15 cm were taken with a variable seedling length of (15-30 cm) i.e. (30-45) DAS. The study revealed that highest yield of 28.5 t ha<sup>-1</sup> was recorded with a bulb size of 36 mm although the total cost of production increased considerably with increase in levels of irrigation and moving from surface to subsurface irrigation methods. The total cost of production varied from 87956.21 Rs/ha to 93563.31 Rs ha<sup>-1</sup>. The overall result revealed that irrigation method and planting method has considerable influence on the yield. B:C Ratio varied from 9.36-13.47 (Rs ha<sup>-1</sup>). The study was intended to infer that the marginal farmer can adopt furrow method of irrigation as compared to other irrigation method on the initial cost of cultivation in drip irrigation (substance) was much higher. This will boast the household income of the marginal farmer improving their standard of living.
