Abstract: This reasearch paper is based on Business performance of SHGs in Jeeraphool rice: A case study of Balrampur district in Chhattisgarh with the objectives: To work out the cost and returns of jeeraphool rice in the study area. The study was conducted in Balrampur district of Chhattisgarh. Out of six blocks of the district, one block, namely Shankargarh was selected purposively for the study. A sample of one hundred 100 member of SHGs were selected for the study. The primary data from the member of SHGs had been collected through personal interview method with the help of well prepared schedule for the year 2017-18. The overall total irrigated area was 0.54 hectares and un-irrigated area was 1.20 hectares and average cropping intensity was observed 134.97 per cent. The average size of holding of jeeraphool rice growers was 1.74 hectares. On an average the cost of cultivation per hectare of Jeeraphool rice were calculated at Rs.36430.77. Among different cost items contribution of total labour cost was 60.85 percent to the total cost in case of Jeeraphool rice, which indicate that the contribution of labour is very high in cost of cultivation of these variety. Gross income for Jeeraphool variety was found to be Rs.90864.17. On an average input-output ratio of aromatic rice varities i.e., Jeeraphool came to 1:2.49.
