ENERGY AND COST USE-EFFICIENCY FOR PRODUCTION OF MAJOR CROPS UNDER ADVANCE AND TRADITIONAL FARMS OF MADHYA PRADESH

The present study examines the variations in the form and extent of energy utilisation and cost use efficiency in production of major crops along with its operational distribution followed by the assessment of energy gaps between advanced and traditional technologies in Madhya Pradesh. In comparison to the advanced technology of crop production operationwise energy hours spent on various crops under traditional tochnology was considerably lower. The yield levels were also lower under traditional technology. The aggregate output-input energy ratio was highest in case of gram and lowest in case of sugarcane under the traditional technology cf crop production. The total output-input energy ratios ranged from 2.14 for soybean to 29.00 for sugarcane under the advanced technology. The overall sourcewise renewable energy use efficiency was higher on traditional farms while the overall average non-renewable energy use efficiency was higher on advanced farms.
