Abstract:
The present study was conducted in the Surguja district of Chhattisgarh. A processor was selected to examine the economics of the processing of turmeric. Personal interviews were used to collect primary data from sampled households during the crop year 2022–23. According to the data, the total cost of processing per quintal is Rs 3479.77. Machine labour has the biggest percentage of cost (43.97 percent), followed by human labour (17.24 percent). That table depicts the factor-wise distribution of total cost per quintal. The profitability of turmeric processing was observed to be that the overall cost of processing was estimated to be Rs 6479.77 per quintal, with the processing cost being Rs 3479.77 per qtl. The price of unprocessed turmeric is Rs 3000.00 per quintal. The average income per quintal is Rs 11700.00, with a net profit of Rs 5220.23 per quintal. As a result, the input/output ratio is 1:1.81.
