The study’s objective is to calculate the cost-benefit ratio of horticulture fruit crop (kinnow) and traditional crops (wheat and cotton). The study was conducted in the Sirsa districts of Haryana during the year 2020-21 and cost-benefit ratio and amortization cost were calculated to draw conclusions. The study has revealed that the highest establishment cost of kinnow orchard was found to be as ` 210266.00 per hectare without subsidy and ` 61075.50 per hectare with subsidy. Cost-benefit ratio of kinnow worked out to be 0.29 with subsidy and 0.15 without subsidy. Besides it, cost-benefit ratio of wheat and cotton was documented as 0.09 and 0.10, respectively. Thus, we may conclude that CB ratio of kinnow crop was higher than cotton and wheat crop which proved that fruit crop (kinnow) were more beneficial than major traditional crops (wheat and cotton).


  • Fruit growers ingrains one rupee then he secures twenty-nine and fifteen paisa in respect of kinnow cultivation with and without subsidy, respectively.
