Abstract:

The present study was conducted at Karimnagar district of Telangana state and it mainly focuses on “A change in the economic level of cotton growers under BCI programme”. A sample of 100 farmers (Beneficiaries 50 and non-beneficiaries 50) was selected for the study. In order to find out the change in the economic level of cotton growers – cost of cultivation, yields, market value and net returns were studied starting from the year of implementation of BCI i.e., from 2012-13 to 2015-16 both for beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. Based on the results each year, the statistical test i.e. ‘Z’ test was applied to find out the difference between the beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries and to know the impact of BCI in each year. From the study it was revealed that significant difference was observed between beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries with respect to reduction in cost of cultivation during the years 2013-14(7.10), 2014-15 (11.25) and 2015-16 (14.03), increase in yields during the years 2013-14 (4.35), 2014-15 (10.58), and 2015-16 (15.18), difference in market value during the years 2013-14 (2.65), 2014-15 (3.72), and 2015-16 (6.74) and increase in net returns during the years 2013-14 (13.76), 2014-15 (10.23), and 2015-16 (17.64).
