Author(s):
SK Gousiya and Dr. K Suseela
Abstract:
Costs and returns of fully and partially mechanized rice production in the West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh were estimated using the cost concepts approach. The primary data was collected from 122 (63 fully and 59 partially mechanized) rice farmers during 2017-18. The results revealed that the cost of cultivation (C3) per hectare in fully mechanized farms (Rs.92842.29/ha) was less than partially mechanized farms (Rs.104022.74/ha), whereas, it was Rs.98361.64/ha for the combined sample. The share of human labour in total cost in fully mechanized farms (16.26 per cent) was less than that of partially mechanized farms (31.07 per cent). The yield, net income over operational cost, and the input-output ratio were higher in fully mechanized farms than the partially mechanized farms.
