A sample of five villages from this tehsil was chosen at random. A random sample of 104 farmers was selected. Total cost of cultivation was found to be the highest in case medium size of farm is 37078.4followed by small size 36856.10, marginal size 35281.06 and large size 35043.0 respectively. Hence, overall total cost of cultivation was found to be Rs. 38026.9 per hectare. The average productivity and gross return of study area of wheat was recorded 34.9 q/ha and Rs. 68543.9 respectively. Net return at cost C2 is 33158.8. Per quintal cost of production is maximum in marginal size farm Rs 1941.0 followed by small size Rs 1935.0, medium size Rs 1869.0, and large size Rs 1844.0 respectively. Improved variety seeds resulted in increased production and return as required by farmers. To build storage facilities to safeguard farmers against forced sales and to increase the value of their goods.
