This study pertained to the irrigated zone of Haryana state The study based on the data collected under the comprehensive scheme to study the cost of cultivation of wheat crop. Under this scheme from each of the 30 centers the data from ten farmers representing 5 size holdings that were upto 1 ha, 1 to 2 ha, 2 to 4 ha, 4 to 6 ha and above 6 ha were collected by the Agriculture Inspectors in different zones. Thus, in all data from sample size of three hundred farmers were collected. The inputs included in this study are seed, irrigation, fertilizer, insecticide, pesticide and herbicide. Each size of holding represent a sample of 60 farmers. The present study was related to agricultural year 2013-14. Data related to actual use of inputs in the wheat crop on each size of holding and in irrigated zone has been tabulated and presented in absolute as well as percentage form in simple and cross tables. The quantity and value of different inputs used per ha in all five size of holding in irrigated zone are presented. The state average for all the inputs used are also calculated. The actual input use has been compared crop-wise with the recommended dose to find out gap. To estimate the response of the input in the wheat crops grown on the farms, the Cobb-Douglas production function was used. The marginal value productivities of all the inputs (at their mean levels) were estimated by taking partial derivative of the production of the concerned crop and multiplying with the price of its output.
