Abstract:

A study was conducted to examine the present status of cashewnut production in Srikakulam District of Andhra Pradesh and to work out the cost and returns of selected cashewnut processing units. A sample of 10 processing units comprising of 5 processing units from two groups namely Group I and Group II processing units were selected based on per day processing capacity. The study concluded that the relative change for area, production and productivity of cashewnut was positive in the district. It was also observed that per quintal cost of processing was higher in case of Group-I (Rs.17409.77) processing units compared to Group-II (Rs.17220.87). The major costs were raw material cost (Rs.12109) and labour wages (Rs.2507.55) at the overall level. Net returns realized per quintal processing of cashewnut were higher in Group-II (4298.63) processing units than Group-I (3410.73). The overall break-even point was worked out to be 181.02 quintal, which was found to be 121.93 and 228.40 quintal in Group-I and Group-II processing units respectively. BCR was worked out to 1.18 and 1.24 for Group-I and Group-II processing units respectively. At overall level NPW was worked out to be 658.21 Rs. lakh at 12 per cent rate and IRR was 35.65.
