Abstract:

The study examined resource use efficiency of Wheat in Solapur district of Maharashtra state. It was observed that, the coefficient of multiple determinations (R2) was 0.935 which indicated 93.00 per cent effect of all independent variables together in wheat production. F-value was 63.26 which were highly significant. Return to scale was 0.32 which indicated increasing return to scale. Among the individual independent variables, partial regression coefficient of area under wheat was 2.52 which positive and significant at 5 per cent level of significance. Similarly, partial regression coefficient of bullock labour was 2.20 which also positive and significant. Partial regression coefficient of irrigation was positive and significant at 5 per cent level i.e. 2.53. It was observed that marginal productivity with respect to area under wheat was 0.021 which means that in addition of one hectare of land to geometric mean which is gives production of wheat by 0.021quintals. Marginal product of potash was 8.94 which means that when there was addition of one quintal of potash it give additional product by 8.94 quintals. Marginal product of plant protection was 7.45 which means that when there was addition of one kg of plant protection it give additional product by 7.45 quintals. Marginal product of bullock labour was 1.51 it indicated that when there was use of one man day of bullock labour give additional product of wheat by 1.51 quintals. The marginal value product (MVP) of area under wheat was found to be Rs. 5460 and marginal input cost of land under wheat was Rs. 8074.54 hence MVP to marginal input cost ratio was 0.68. MVP to marginal input cost ratio of Irrigation was found to be 2.73 which was highest.
