Abstract:

The present study was undertaken in Belagavi district of Karnataka to analyse the resource use efficiency of Soybean crop. The multi-stage random sampling procedure was adopted to choose the sample farmers. The total sample size selected for the present study was 60. A Cobb-Douglas production analysis technique was used to analyze the data. The results of the study revealed that seed, FYM, human labour, bullock labour, and fertilizer were over utilised and machine labour and plant protection chemicals were under utilised by the farmers. The MVP to MFC ratio for Seed (-0.59), FYM (0.27), Human labour (0.13), Bullock labour (-0.23), Fertilizer (-0.05) were less than 1 hence the resources in study area was over utilized and machine labour (3.60) and PP chemicals (2.21) were showing more than one. Hence these resources are underutilized hence there is scope for increasing these resources.
