List of the villages from selected blocks were prepared along with hectarage under wheat cultivation and 5 villages were selected randomly for study. In all 200 number of farmers were selected proportionally from each category of farmers and classified into three categories i.e. marginal (below 1 ha), small (1-2 ha), large (2 ha & above). The period of enquiry pertain to the agricultural year 2016-17. The primary data were collected from 200 sample respondents (100 small, 70 small and 30 large) through pre-tested interview schedule. The present study has been made to work out the cost of cultivation, profitability and production of wheat. The cost of cultivation was found to be highest on large farm Rs/ha 56542.27 as compared to medium farm Rs/ha 53431.12 and small farm Rs/ha 49900.00. The gross income received from wheat cultivation was to be Rs/ha 92406.25 per hectare on overall farms, while gross income was found to be maximum in case of large farm Rs/ha 99656.25 followed by medium farm Rs/ha 93187.50 and small farm Rs/ha 84375.00.

The benefit cost ratio was found to 1:1.73 on overall basis. The cost according to different cost concept on overall basis was as fallows, cost A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, C3 were observed to Rs. 22850.83, Rs. 22850.83, Rs. 35849.49, Rs. 49849.49, Rs. 39291.16, Rs. 53291.16 and Rs. 58620.27 on sample farms respectively
