Abstract:

An on-farm demonstration was conducted for three years (2015, 2016 and 2017) during kharif and rabi season at farmers’ field to assess suitable alternate crop and its economics during kharif and rabi season in southern black soils (SBS) of Prakasam district. Sole crop of FCV tobacco was compared with redgran, maize, jowar, chickpea, blackgram and safflower. Chickepea crop performed better in terms of net returns Rs.61750 ha-1 and B:C (1:2.52) ratio followed by :blackgram with net returns of Rs.61750 ha-1 and B:C ratio of (1:2.40) as they fetched higher price in the market. Among the crops tried, maize, jowar and redgram were the next best remunerative crops as they recorded higher net returns of Rs. 32958 ha-1, Rs.29871 ha-1 and Rs.29533 ha-1respectively. Chickpea and redgram crops were to be economically viable alternate to FCV tobacco.
