Abstract:
Investigation was carried out during the year 2014-15. About 48 non-mechanised Famrs were randomly selected from sixteen villages of two tehsils in Parbhani district of Maharashtra. Data were related to cotton output and input like area under crop, hired human labour, bullock labour, machine labour, seed, manure, nitrogen, phosphorus, Potash and plant protection. The results revealed that partial regression coefficient of Bullock labour was 0.130 followed by Manure was 0.111 significant at 1 per cent level and plant protection (0.108) was significant at 5 per cent level. Partial regression coefficient of area under crop, hired human labour, nitrogen, phosphorus, irrigation, plant protection were positive but non-significant. Marginal product of area under crop was 0.448q followed by manure (0.148q). MVP to price ratio with respect to nitrogen was 23.26 followed by plant protection (7.78), manure (4.73). Optimum resource use of nitrogen was 944.82 and irrigation was 1684.6.
