Author(s):

Abstract:
The presented study was carried out to estimate resource use efficiency and assess the relative importance of various inputs in potato production. The study was conducted Surguja and Balrampur districts of Northern Hills Zone of Chhattisgarh due to intensive cultivation of potato in these districts. The primary data from 100 potato growers was collected through personal interview method. The Linear and Cobb-Douglas production function were tried to assess the influence of various productive resources in production of potato and Cobb-Douglas production function were found best fit. The study revealed that expenditure on plant protection measures, machine labour and manure & fertilizer had positive and statistically significant effect on potato production and explained 66.67 per cent variation in total potato production. Resource use efficiency analysis indicated that plant protection measures, machine labour and manure & fertilizer were underutilized. Hence, the farmers-producers need to use more quantity of these inputs for obtaining higher returns from potato cultivation.
