Abstract:
The current investigation was conducted in the Raigad district of Maharashtra State to examine the economics of white onion cultivation in this region t. For this purpose, 120 white onion cultivators were randomly selected from two tehsils viz., Alibag and Pen. White onion production in the study area required 313.46 labour days per hectare. The per hectare fertilizer used was 118.96 kg N, 56.44 kg P and 62.98 kg K at overall level and per hectare cost for fertilizers was ₹ 10,337. Per hectare seed utilized at overall level was 12.03 kg costing ₹ 48,120. The per hectare FYM utilised was 9.11 cartloads costing ₹ 22,775. The per hectare cost of cultivation at overall level was s ₹ 2,87,164. Per hectare cost of cultivation increased with increase in farm size. The study concluded that gross return obtained per hectare at overall level was ₹ 4,33,950. As farm size increased, the gross return per hectare increased as well. The per hectare yield was found to be increased with increase in land holding. The benefit-cost ratio for white onion cultivation was found to be 1.51 indicating the profitable nature of the enterprise. The MVP/MFC ratio indicated that fertilizers and human labour days used in the production of white onions are under-utilized while the area planted with white onions, the seed, the number of machinery hours, the FYM and irrigation were over utilized.
