Abstract:

The paper manufacturing units use pulpwood from tree like eucalyptus and casuarina. The cultivation of such trees is now being promoted by two leading paper industries in Tamil Nadu. This partnership (tie-up) is thus a new institutional innovation to bring synergy, mobilize resources, generate, validate and transfer technologies against non-tie up farmers who did not enter into such agreement. This study aims at estimating the economics of production of pulpwood trees grown predominantly in two districts of Tamil Nadu. The estimation of cost of cultivation of eucalyptus and casuarina indicated that cultivation of these pulpwood trees are profitable and financially feasible. The tie-up farmers were able to realize higher profit due to the farmer-industry interface. Moreover, the production function estimates indicated that the cultivation is labour intensive and inputs like density of planting irrigation, fertilizer and plant protection chemicals significantly influenced the cultivation of both the pulpwood


Keywords: Production function, tie-up, financial feasibility
