In the present paper an attempt has been made to examine the resources use efficiency of wheat cultivation in Auraiya district of western Uttar Pradesh. The study covered five villages of Auraiya district and hundred sample farmers (Marginal, Small and Medium) were interviewed from five villages of Bhagya Nagar block of Auraiya district (U.P.) to work out cropping pattern and cropping intensity along with the cost of cultivation and profit measures on wheat crop of sample farms. Data ware analyzed and found that average holding size was 0.818 hectare and cropping intensity was 216.04 percent, wheat occupied 32.05 percent of gross cropped area, it offers a net income of ₹15796.23 with an expenditure of ₹48691.13 as total cost per hectare. Input-output ratio was found 1:1.32 on over all farms having direct related with size of holding wheat cultivation in the study area characterized by decreasing return to scale.

Keywords: Cobb-Douglas production function, Cropping intensity, Efficiency, Wheat
