Abstract:

The present study on economic analysis of sugarcane cultivation was fulfilled with the specific objective to estimate cost and return in sugarcane cultivation was conducted in Sonipat district of Haryana state during the year 2017-18. It was selected 4 blocks randomly; namely Sonipat, Kharkhoda, Gohana, and Ganaur blocks from sonipat district were undertaken on the basis of maximum area brought under cultivation of sugarcane of haryana state. 200 farmers were selected randomly from four blocks out of which, marginal (14), small (49), medium (69) and large (68). The findings of the study envisaged that among the different irrigation methods, drip method was the highest percentage at large farm in sugarcane cultivation and found to be 78.70 percent area, which was start decreasing as farm size decreases. Drip method was not popular among marginal and small farmers. The sampled households were sugarcane growers and percentage area under sugarcane was ranging from 26.08 percent at large farms to 31.25 percent at marginal farms. The cropping intensity was also high, which varied from 105 percent at large farms to 267 percent at marginal farms. The inputs/material use in fresh sown sugarcane and ratoon crop was not as per the recommendation and initial inputs use, labour and power use were found to be less than fresh sown sugarcane. The cost of cultivation of crop under flood ratoon was 93728 Rs/ha, sprinkler 97973 Rs/ha and drip 93568 Rs/ha whereas, it was found to be flood fresh sown sugarcane was 126188 Rs/ha, in sprinkler 133957 Rs/ha and in drip 136043 Rs/ha, respectively. This gives us variable cost incurred in ratoon crop was less than fresh sown sugarcane. The benefit cost ratio in ratoon crop of sugarcane was comparatively higher in all three methods of irrigation than that of fresh sown sugarcane; it indicates that ratoon crop has involvement of low cost of production and high net return but not have long term benefit to increase the productivity of sugarcane.
