The study was carried out with objective to estimate cost and returns of maize in Madhya Pradesh. In this article, we have analysed absolute and relative change, variability and growth rate during the study period 2000-01 to 2018-19 of maize. The required data were collected from Directorate of Economics and Statistics, for estimation of cost of cultivation cost concept (cost A1 A2, B1 B2 C1 C2 and C3) were used and profitability estimation, net income, family labour income, farm business income and B:C ratio were calculated. The cost of cultivation of maize (total cost C2) was Rs. 42391.49 per hectare, variable cost percentage was 67.65 percent and fixed cost was 23.26 percent. The per hectare gross income was Rs. 40735.83 with B: C ratio of 0.96 which showed not profitable but nearer to profitable of crop. On the basis of finding of study, it is recommended that the study area efforts should be made to find out the reasons behind decreasing net return in this state and adopt the govt. policies (like. National Food Security Mission for coarse cereal).
