M.K. Hasan, M.A. Hussain, B.C. Kundu, D.A. Choudhury and M. Nazim Uddin    

Abstract: The study was carried out to assess the input use pattern, comparative profitability and resource utilization to cabbage cultivation in different growing periods. The highest gross return as well as net return was obtained from pre-rabi period of cabbage cultivation. The lowest gross return and net loss was obtained from late-rabi period of cabbage cultivation. The study revealed that cabbage cultivation is more profitable in pre-rabi period and least profitable (actually negative profitable) in the late-rabi period. The benefit cost ratio was the highest for pre-rabi period in both variable cost and total cost basis. Return to labour was calculated highest for pre-rabi cultivation indicating best use of highest cost involvement input. Marginal rate of return was found 1667% for pre-rabi cultivation which implies that taka one hundred additional investment to pre-rabi rather than optimum-rabi will provide additional taka 1667 to the growers.
