Author(s): Krishna Kant and JP Singh

Abstract:
The evaluation of production of okra crop primary data for the year 2015-16 were collected from randomly selected 100 farmers of okra growers in Meerut district of Western Utter Pradesh. The objective of the study were to identify the cost of cultivation and resource use efficiency of the cultivators in using input resources and to access the impact of geographical factors on okra production. The analysis revealed that the major item of cost incurred by the farmers was the expenditure made on labour (23.61%), the gross income increased with an increased in the farm size and net income per hectare of okra cultivation increased with an increased in the farm size except small farm. Resource use efficiency were found statically significant in case of human labours in all size of farms MVP of manure & fertilizer on small and medium farms were found less than unity indicated excess investment on this variable and return to scale is observed less than unity in all farms of Okra production.
