Abstract:
A study has been carried out to evaluate break- even point under paddy and wheat production in the Dabra block, Gwalior district Madhya Pradesh. Multistage random sampling method was used to acquire sample farmer. 20 paddy and wheat growing villages were selected randomly from the Dabra block thereafter, a list of paddy and wheat farmers from each selected villages were prepared then classified into five major categories on the basis of their land holding i.e. marginal, small, semi medium, medium, and large. Then a sample of 30 farmers were selected in each category by simple random sampling technique under proportionate allocation from 20 villages treated as strata thus, 150 paddy and 150 wheat farmers were selected. The breakeven point was observed 10.24 and 8.08 quintals/ ha in paddy and wheat respectively which indicated that a paddy farmer should produce a minimum of 10.24 quintal of paddy /ha and wheat farmer produce a minimum of 8.08 quintal of wheat /ha so as to not incurred any losses. But in study area actual production was grater as compared to break even in both the crop indicated that paddy and wheat production is profitable in the study area.
