Economics of Wheat Production in District Faisalabad

Manzoor Ahmad and S. Hassan Raza Zaidi

Wheat is the single largest staple food crop of Pakistan. But it is the irony of fate that average yield per hectare of Wheat is very low in Pakistan as compared to other countries. There are many physiological and agronomic factors responsible for this menace. Among these the most important are inadequate and unbalanced application of fertilizer and manure, poor crop management practices bad quality of soil, irrigation deficiency at critical stages, lack of usage of HYVs, high weed intensity in the fields etc. This study was conducted, using the primary data, in order to undertake the economic analysis of the different factors on the farm based categories: small, medium, large and the productivity based categories: low, medium, high. In the economic analysis gross margins, marginal costs and marginal rates of returns were evaluated from the primary data collected from district Faisalabad.
