Cost Of Cultivation
The scheme for conducting cost of cultivation survey was initiated in 1979-80.
The survey intends to find out the cost of cultivation of the major crops and few minor crops covered in EARAS. This survey is spread out in 38 Taluks. From the Taluks zones are selected. Plots are selected from the zones as per the list available from EARAS (that of the previous year). Thus cultivators are also listed from the selected plots.
The data collected from this survey are used for the successful implementation of various schemes in the Agricultural sector, required to draw up realistic plans for the development of various crops, diversification of cropping patterns and maximization of net returns from them. Moreover these data are used by the States and Central Governments to fix floor support prices for agricultural commodities-paddy and coconut.
The growth trend in the agricultural sector has not been consistant in Kerala. Food Crops in general have shown a decreasing trend in area and production. Tne contribution of agriculture to state income has been to the decline. For formulating Proper Price Policies and for achieving economic efficiency of the crop production sector, studies on the Cost of Cultivation of important crops in Kerala is essential. With the ends in view, this department conducts annual study on cost of cultivation of important crops in Kerala.
