Capsicum or Bell pepper or Hot pepper (Capsicum annum L.) is a crop of Solanaceae family and its genus is Capsicum. It is also known as green pepper or shimla mirch. Present investigation was conducted in Shajjapur District of M.P. A multistage stratified random sampling technique was adopted to selection of sample. The study showed that on an average, cost of cultivation per hectare of capsicum crop on overall basis was found to be cost A1 that is paid out cost Rs.53318 followed by Rs.56624.32 (cost B1), Rs.10015.50 (cost B2), Rs.64383.98 (cost C1), Rs.107775.16 (cost C2) and Rs.118552.68 (cost C3) respectively. The average yield was found to be 110.08 quintal per hectare. The net income is the real income realized by capsicum growers and it was found to be on an average of Rs.141794.40 per hectare, and B.C. ratio on an average of 2.19 as B.C. ratio in capsicum production. The major constraints which got higher frequency value than the average value were “high cost of seed” reported by (83.33%, rank Ist) followed by “absence of remunerative price” reported by (83.33%, rank IInd), “lack of desire variety” reported by (82.22%, rank IIIrd) and“lack od knowledge of plant protection measures” reported by (78.88%, rank IVth) respectively.
