Abstract:

An attempt has been made to assess the impact of agricultural credit on yield and income of sugarcane and paddy in Erode district of Tamil Nadu. The study shows the major contributor of input to the total cost was human labour, fertilizer & manure and irrigation charges for both borrower-and non-borrower farmers. There exists gap between scale of finance and required working capital in the study area. The findings also showed that the cost of cultivation as well as the yield were higher in the case of  borrower category  compared to non-borrower category. It also confirmed that agricultural credit had positive impact on the crop production in the study area. Based on the results, appropriate policies were suggested to improve the lending system.
