Abstract:

Agriculture plays an important role in rural development. Rice is the more popular staple food of more than 80 per cent of the world population. It contributes 42 per cent of the total food production in India. The present study is based on secondary time series data. The compound growth rates, instability and standard cost concepts were use for the present study. It concluded that the compound growth rates for area were positive for all most all the district of EVZ except Gondia. The growth rates of area were below one per cent indicates that paddy is the traditional crop in study area. On the other hand, the compound growth rates for production were positive and significant in Bhandara and Gondia district. The highest coefficient of variation for area under paddy was estimated for Chandrapur District 10.92 (per cent) and lowest for Bhandara District 5.04 (per cent) of Eastern Vidarbha region. The cost of Cultivation structure of Paddy indicated that, the most important costly input was human labour which accounted in between 36.29 to 32.31 during five years and on an average 34.50 per cent. The other important items of cost of cultivation are machine labour (9.83 per cent), bullock labour (7.01 per cent) and fertilizers and manure (11.81 per cent), respectively. The input out ratio was more than one at Cost A and B. It implies that the crop is profitable at variable cost. But, it is not profitable at cost C. However, there is a chance to get better profit from Paddy cultivation because, firstly, there is less chance of crop failures.  Secondly, it is grown in both seasons i.e. kharif & summer. Thirdly, it is a staple food for rural population. Hence there is a scope to increase qualitative yield in by introducing new development programmes and increase in technical efficiency at farm level.It is further observed that farmers were receiving more than MSP prices during last five years. But the cost of production was higher than MSP. Hence, it is necessary to formulate appropriate price policy for economic development of the paddy farmers.
