Abstract:

Mango is the most important commercially grown fruit crop. India is the largest producer and exporter of mango in the world and Karnataka is one of the important mango producing state. The majority of the farmers (38.33%) were in the category of annual income of 2.01 to 3.00 lakh. The extent of use of all the inputs in the cultivation of mango was higher in Alphonso variety compared to Dassehari, Kesar and Bennishan varieties. Consequently, the per acre total cost of cultivation was also higher in Alphonso ( 53.532) compared to Kesar ( 49,794), Dassehari ( 48,549) and Bennishan ( 47,871) varieties. The cost incurred on FYM and fertilizer was the other major cost components of the total variable cost. The per quintal cost of production of Alphonso variety of mango was ( 3,194) and Kesar ( 3013) varieties was higher than that of Dassehari ( 2,948) and Bennishan ( 2,919) varieties. However, the magnitude of benefit-cost ratio was higher in Alphonso (2.08) followed by Dassehari (2.00), Kesar (1.87) and Bennishan (1.48) with average ratio of 1.86 across the varieties mainly because of higher price fetched and lower cost incurred especially on Alphonso variety.
