Arti Dhruw and VK Choudhary
An attempt has been done for analysis for economics of an emerging enterprises of makhana cultivation: a case study of Chhattisgarh plains. The research was carried out in Dhamtari and Raipur District of Chhattisgarh. Dhamtari KVK under farmers and Ojas Farm are cultivating makhana in pond system. The overall cost of cultivation of Makhana per hectare is Rs. 1,27,105.04. The gross return for makhana was Rs. 2,83,500/ha. The average yield per ha is Rs. 18.9 qt. and net returns is Rs. 1,56,395/ha. The total cost of cultivation of Makhana is Rs. 80464.37 / ha. The gross return for makhana is Rs. 2,17,500/ha. The average yield was 14.5 qt. The net returns is Rs. 1,37,035.62/ha. The cost of processing per kg of the makhana seed is Rs. 22.50. The cost of processing makhana pop is Rs. 70.31 per kg. Benefit-cost ratio for makhana is 1:1.23. The Input-output ratio for makhana is 1:2.23. Benefit-cost ratio for makhana is 1:1.70. The input-output ratio for makhana is 1:2.70. The major constraints in the production of makhana was lack of technical knowledge about cultivation, followed by limited availability of seed, lack of modern equipment, lack of credit availability, adverse environment factors, lack low productivity and used old processing technique, problems in the processing of makhana ware lack of processing machinery and equipment, followed by nonavailability of credit facility, and health risks and dependence on climate conditions.
