Abstract: The study was conducted in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. The objectives of study also examined resource use, cost and returns structure, resource use productivity, resource use efficiency of Alphonso mango in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. The study was based on the primary data of 90 Alphonso mango cultivators for the year 2014-15. The data was collected by survey method by conducting personal interviews using specially designed questionnaire for the study purpose. The data with respect to land use pattern, cropping pattern, input utilization and yield for mango crop was collected from cultivators. The functional analysis was carried out by using Cobb-Douglas type of production function. The study revealed that at the overall level, per hectare cost of establishment of mango orchard was worked out to Rs. 1,23,919.44. Per hectare total cost of maintenance (Cost C) at overall level of mango orchard was Rs. 2,12,196.22 out of which share of Cost-A was 50.45 per cent and Cost B was 93.00 per cent. Total benefit cost ratio of Alphonso mango was 1.30 at overall level. The results of production function analysis indicated that the selected ten variables jointly explained 0.64 per cent variation in production under Alphonso mango. The elasticity coefficient for Nitrogen (X4) and number of plants (X9) was positive and found statistically significant at 1 per cent and 10 per cent level of probability. The major constraint faced by 97.78 per cent sample mango growers was lack of cold storage facility. Thereforethe present study was undertaken to analyze the “Economics of production of Alphonso mango in Sindhudurg District.”
