Abstract

Economic analysis of protected cultivation of bell pepper in response to various PGRs during rabi, 2015. Bell pepper was exposed to ten different treatments comprising of three levels of each PGR (NAA at 20, 40 and 60 ppm; GA3 at 25, 50 and 75 ppm and 2,4- D at 2.5, 5 and 7.5 ppm).The economic analysis of production system of bell pepper under NVPH displayed total cost of cultivation ranging from Rs. 152869 to 155092 invariably dependent on cost of PGRs and packing of bell pepper produce. Application of NAA at the rate of 20 ppm was observed as highly remunerative treatment exhibiting BCR of 1.22 with net realization of Rs. 188850.00, which can further be increased upto a level of Rs. 224302 and Rs. 229756 by availing 65 and 75% subsidy being imparted by government of Gujarat.
