Abstract:

An attempt was made to study the comparative economics of capsicum cultivation under protected and open field conditions in Himachal Pradesh. Solan district was selected purposively on the basis of predominance of capsicum cultivation both under polyhouse and open field conditions. The primary data were collected by personal interviews of the selected farmers with the help of a specially designed schedule. Simple statistical tools like averages and percentages were used for processing the data. The overall findings of the study revealed the cost of production of capsicum under open conditions was Rs. 113878.48 per hectare at overall basis, varied between Rs. 118695.63 to Rs. 128959.10 per hectare among different farm categories. The cost of production of capsicum under protected conditions was Rs. 23570.64 and Rs. 40393.32 in 250 m2 and 500 m2 polyhouse respectively. Comparative economics analysis revealed that the cost of cultivation of capsicum under polyhouses were higher as compared to open field conditions by Rs. 20755.63/250 m2, Rs. 34769.90/500 m2. The net retunes from capsicum under protected conditions, were higher as compared to open field conditions Rs. 246.94 /250 m2, Rs. 15792.38/500 m2. The results of the study revealed that the vegetable cultivation under polyhouses have contributed to the yield significantly.
