Abstract:
The study is based on “An economic analysis of production and marketing of major pulses in Rajnandgaon district of Chhattisgarh”. The selection of the required minimum of 100 respondents will be done via random proportionate sampling. Primary information will be gathered from a few key pulse growers. Utilizing pre-tested questionnaires, data will be gathered through the personal interview approach. Various government departments, including the Department of Agriculture, the Directorate of Economics and Statistics, the Government of Chhattisgarh, and other sources, will be used to gather the secondary data. For 2020–21, a thorough analysis was conducted. On average, it is discovered that the gross cost per hectare of gram is 22811.04 Rs. 10.54 qt of gram are produced on average per hectare. The gross cost per hectare of lentil is found to be 18733.34 Rs. per hectare on an average. Lentil yields per acre on average were 7.28 qt. The average projected production cost per qt is Rs. 2570.47. Rs. 30595.74 was the average production value per acre. The average net income for lentil is Rs. 11862.39. The average input-output ratio is estimated to be 2.02 and the average B-C ratio to be 1.63. The costs and returns in the production of lentils on the sample farm of various size groups based on the cost idea. For the sample farms, the average Cost A1, Cost A2, Cost A2+family labour, Cost B1, Cost B2, Cost C1, Cost C2, and Cost C3 per hectare are, in order, Rs. 13130.77, Rs. 13130.77, Rs. 15171.87, Rs. 13358.15, Rs. 16358.15, Rs. 13370.15, Rs. 18399.36, and Rs. 20239.30.

Less crop price (88%) and a lack of market knowledge and intelligence (72%) were the two main obstacles to the commercialization of key pulses.
