Abstract:

An attempt has been made in this paper to estimate and compare how the cost of cultivation of crops changes over the period. The analysis is based on the cost of cultivation data collected from reports of Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Government of India for the two major crops of Tamil Nadu, paddy and sugarcane for the period 2000-01 to 2014-15. The results of the study showed that rise in cost of cultivation were tremendously higher than the rise in profit. The study suggested for scheduled application of fertilisers and maximum possible mechanization of crop cultivation in order to reduce the cost of production.
