Abstract:

Apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) is the most important fruit crop of Ladakh district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and it is grown in the lower belt areas (Takmachik and Lehdo) of Ladakh. Apricot has some comparative benefits and advantages which is the result of different relief. This study reveals the production level (quantity and quality), costs (investment and production costs- divided into material cost and human costs) profit and overall investment. Total cost of cultivation of apricot crop recorded Rs/100 trees is 12000/-, Labour cost recorded Rs 28000/- and shared of 100 percent to the total cost. Small farm size is analyzed for the total cost of cultivation of Apricot, yield/quintals and benefit received on/rupee is Rs.4.71/-, estimated gross return of Apricot was Rs/100 trees is 160000/- and obtained net return was Rs. 132000/-. The use of two technological invention viz., Harvesting net and apricot dryer were proves to be good technology and boon to farmers for saving the apricot productivity.
