Abstract:

An attempt has been made to examine the resource use efficiency, marginal value productivity of resources and return to scale of Cashewnut grown by different categories of farmers. Selsella block of West Garo Hills district in Meghalaya was selected purposively and two stage stratified random sampling method was adopted for selection of sample villages and respondents. It was seen that small farms, manures and fertilizers was highly significant at one per cent level of probability and the inputs like raw seed nut, labour, insecticides & pesticides and irrigation were significant at five per cent level of probability. But in case of miscellaneous expenditures it was not significant. It showed that raw nut, labour, manures and fertilizers and insecticides and pesticides, irrigation have a positive impact towards the income from cashewnut. The ratio MVP and MFC ratio was positive and greater than one. The greater than unit and it is significant in case of inputs like nut, labour, manures and fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides etc. Its significance indicated the possibility of additional use of these inputs to achieve the optimum level.
