Abstract:
Study was carried out to examine the energy requirement and cost economics of apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.) production in the Shopian district of Kashmir province of erstwhile state of J&K. The main objective of the study was to examine the energy use patterns and input-output analysis of apple production being cultivated on an area of about 61,316.84 MJha-1. The information for apple production were collected from sixty different apple farms located in different villages of district Shopian by using face-to-face survey method The study revealed that apple production consumed a total energy of 61,316.84 MJ ha-1 contributed mainly by chemical fertilizers (nitrogen), with an energy input of 71.46%, followed by spraying (19.9%). Further, energy input output ratio for apple was estimated to be 1.38. The non-renewable form of energy contributed 93% of the total energy input used in apple production whereas the continuation by for the renewable form was only 7%. The cost benefit ratio of apple was found to be 2.71.
