Abstract

Considering the growing importance of SRI in the state, the present study was conducted in two blocks (Ghaghra and Bishunpur) of Gumla district to compare the economics of SRI and conventional method of paddy cultivation. The study analyzed whether the system of rice intensification is profitable over conventional method or not. Out of a sample of 60 paddy growers’ thirty farmers has cultivated paddy with SRI method and thirty with conventional method. Commission for Agricultural Costs and prices (CACP) cost concept was used to calculate cost which indicated that cost of cultivation was higher in SRI than conventional method and returns were also higher in case of SRI during the year 2013–14. It was found that farmers using SRI technology were technically more efficient than conventional method and the allocation of inputs was relatively more efficient in case of SRI than conventional method of paddy cultivation
