The gross returns obtained per hectare by large size and medium size farms were high (Rs.38000/ha) as compare to small size farms (Rs.36000/ha) respectively, and the net returns per hectare obtained by large size farms were high (Rs.12609.50/ha) as compared to medium and small size farms (Rs.11327.80/ha and Rs.8979.30/ha) respectively.
