Estimation of Net Returns from Main Crops in District Malakand

Dilawar Khan, Muhammad Bashir and Muhammad Zulfiqar

Abstract:
This research was aimed to determine the net returns of three main crops, i.e. wheat, rice and maize in District Malakand of NWFP during the year 2000. The cropped area of sampled respondents was 270 acres each in Kharif and Rabi season. Wheat was being grown on 87% of the cropped area during Rabi season where as in Kharif, because of more yield and cash, rice was sown on 75% area and maize on 9% area. From a total cost of 6095, 4073 and 4104 rupees per acre for rice, maize and wheat crops, respectively, with the exception of 12% for rice, 2% for maize and 1% for wheat, the rest was spent on crop rising. For rice crop, 10 and 2% of the total cost was found on nursery raising and marketing, respectively. The total gross returns of rice, maize and wheat were 10932, 7745 and 8613 rupees, respectively. The net return is the subtraction of total cost per acre from the gross returns per acre. So the net returns of rice, maize and wheat were 4837, 3672 and 4509 rupees per acre, respectively. The study as a whole shows that rice gives more net return than wheat and maize in the study area.
