Abstract:

The study was undertaken with an objective to quantify the comparative economics of Maize, under different supply chains in Northern and Southern Karnataka. A sample of 240 farmers were selected using random sampling method and the data was collected through personal interview method. Tabular analysis were employed for analysing the data. Northern and Southern Karnataka were purposively selected for their major contribution to Maize production. Among the Northern districts, Belagavi and Haveri and in Southern districts Davangere and Chitradurga had the highest area and production. Results indicated that among the supply chains existed in two regions, per hectare cost of cultivation of maize was higher in Northern Karnataka, share of variable cost to the total cost was also higher in the case of Northern Karnataka followed by Southern Karnataka. The Northern Karnataka farmers realized relatively higher levels of net returns due to higher price received for the produce and better management practices. The B; C ratio was higher in Northern Karnataka (1.93) followed by Southern Karnataka (1.71) and as the share of total variable cost to the total cost was higher. Further the net returns per hectare in case of Northern Karnataka and Southern Karnataka was estimated to be Rs. 48,605.5and Rs. 29,819 respectively. It was inferred that profitability of maize cultivation was higher in Northern Karnataka than in Southern Karnataka.
