Abstract:

Banana (Musa paradisiaca L) is the fourth largest fruit crop cultivated in the world. India is largest producer of banana in the world producing 28.45 million tonnes from an area of 0.796 million ha with a productivity of 35.7 MT ha-1. This paper presents the costs and returns structure of banana in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. A sample of 120 farmers was randomly selected. The farmers were stratified into Marginal (2 ha) categories on the basis of their size of operational holding. The total cost of cultivation of banana per hectare was Rs. 3, 27, 531.06, Rs. 3, 13, 337.47, Rs. 2, 47, 989.47 and Rs. 3, 21, 323.07 on marginal, small, other and pooled farms respectively. The gross returns were Rs. 4.47, 592. 71, Rs. 4, 78, 306.13 and Rs. 4, 91, 516.58 and 4, 79, 795.94 on marginal, small, other and pooled farms respectively indicated direct relationship with the farm size.
