Abstract:

Sugarcane is a major cash crop of India, particularly in UP, Maharastra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujurat, and Foot hils of Uttarakhand. Sugarcane crop has a productivity of 70 tonnes/ha and an area of 4.2 mha. plays a pivotal role in the national economy. Sugarcane is considered as one of the best cash crops in Orissa. It is grown in all the 30 districts of Orissa. The selected district Dhenkanal occupied 10th position in area (1.19 thousand ha), 9th position in production (81.46 thousand MTs) and 14th position in yield (68510 kg/ha) in 2004-05. The establishment of a sugar factory in Dhenkanal district has increased the prospect of this crop in the surrounding area. The marginal and small farms managed to earn more net return that other two categories of sample farms in both the regions. The other measures of farm incomes, like family labour income farm business income farm investment income etc. exhibited inverse relationship with farm size in both the regions excepting few cases.
