Groundnut (Arachis hypogea L.) member of Papillionace subfamily of Fabiace family which comprises important oilseed crop in the world. It is self pollinated crop. China is the largest producer of groundnut in the world accounting for more than 40% followed by India with about 15% share. Though, India is the largest cultivator of groundnut crop in terms of acreage. India has remained in the second among the top groundnut producing countries despite having the largest area under groundnut cultivation in the world. For the present study two tehsils were selected on the basis of highest area under crop i.e. Pandharpur and Malshirus. From these two tehsils, total 10 villages selected randomly and from these 10 villages, 9 farmers were selected from each village, Therefore total 90 groundnut growers were selected for study. Information collected from groundnut growers were analyzed and result obtained that, Cost-A was Rs. 94953.32, Cost- B was Rs. 138808.95 and Cost- C was 143199.76. Gross return obtained was Rs. 202606.74 and net profit was Rs. 59406.98. B: C ratio was 1.41.

Keywords: Groundnut, Cost, Gross return, Net profit and B:C ratio
