Abstract:

The economic analysis, production and profitability of grapevine orchard in Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu was performed. Present study revealed that an area under grape cultivation is decreasing over a decade by 1.17 per cent. Similarly, production and productivity also declined by 10.16 and 9.55 per cent respectively. The factors which are significantly positively influence the yield of grapes are age of vine yard, application of farmyard manure and phosphorus. Annual establishment cost was worked out to be Rs. 4.25 lakhs per ha. Establishment of grape enterprise was found to be financially feasible and net return was high which is about Rs. 2.13 lakhs per ha. It was observed from the study that lack of price information (score I) and disease infestation (score II) were the major constraints to inhibit grapevine cultivation. Providing current price information, assistance in exporting, developing new high yielding variety, resistant to disease infestation and tolerant to climatic condition and proper harmonization of Grape Growers Association may increase the welfare of the growers.
