Abstract

An economic analysis of capsicum production in Haryana under different protected structures has been done in the present study. Sonepat, Karnal and Hisar districts were purposively selected as cultivation under all types of protected structures (natural ventilated polyhouses, net houses, and walk-in-tunnels) is practice in these districts. The results obtained in this study indicated that the naturally ventilated polyhouse has the highest total cost (Cost C2) incurred on capsicum in the district of Sonepat followed by Hisar and Karnal. Net returns were found highest in Karnal district followed by Hisar and Sonepat, respectively. B:C ratio was found highest in Karnal among all these three selected districts. In case of net house, the highest total cost incurred on capsicum in Karnal district followed by the districts of Sonepat and Hisar. However, Hisar district gave the highest net returns followed by Karnal and Sonepat. B:C ratio was found highest in Hisar as compared to Sonepat and Karnal districts, while, in walk-in-tunnel structures, highest total cost incurred on capsicum in Sonepat district among all districts. Net returns were found highest in Sonepat district in comparison to all districts. B:C ratio was equal recorded in Sonepat and Hisar district. It was calculated from the study that producer's share in consumer rupee was found highest in market channel-III (producer to direct consumer) which was proved to be most efficient channel in marketing of capsicum.
