Abstract:

Keeping in view the importance of the vegetable crops in nutritional security and generating the income and employment to the farm population a study on economics of cauliflower cultivation in Chiraigaon block of Varanasi district of U.P. was conducted in agriculture year 2016-2017. Stratified purposive cum random sampling technique was applied to select the sample respondents’ primary data were collected through interview method. Tabular and function analysis was done to present the result. Overall average size of holding was 0.78 ha. Which were 0.56 ha 1.19 ha and 2.76 ha. At marginal, small and medium size of farms respectively. Per farm and per hectare investment on sample farms was of positive trend with size of holding. Cost of cultivation and different income measures were also had the positive trend with size of farms. Output – Input ratio were 1:1.98, 1:2.02, and 1:2.11 on marginal, small and medium size group of farm which was recorded as 1:2.00 at overall farm. Cauliflower cultivation was found profitable on each size group of farms and it was characterized of decreasing returns to scale as sum of elasticity were less than one in all categories of farms. Value of multiple coefficient of determination (R2) shows 93.65, 80.67 and 95.87 per cent variation in output due to all included input factors in study. MVP of all the input factors in every farms size except few were more than one which showed the further possibility of increased expenditure to receive additional profit. Technical, managerial, financial and miscellaneous problem were faced by the sample farmers which were suggested to solve by having some extension activities as and when possible and little more support of financial institution for credit. At last cauliflower cultivation was found more suitable for the farmers of the study area.
