Abstract: The study was on “Partial budgeting of ICM, IPM and Non-IPM Chilli farms in Telangana region”. Which was conducted in two villages Gudepally and Damarcharla from two districts Warangal and Kammam districts respectively, the major chilli producing areas in Telangana and in these areas ITC is giving assistance to practice IPM technology. For the study, 30 ICM, 30 IPM and 30 Non- IPM farmers were randomly selected from two districts. By change in practices followed in ICM and IPM fields, partial budgeting technique is used to determine added costs, added returns, reduced cost and reduced returns to ascertain the net gain. The net change in the profit obtained by the ICM farmers in Gudepally village was observed to be Rs. 132729.5 per hectare due to adoption of ICM practices in their farms as against the practices adopted by the Non-IPM farmers. The same in case of ICM farmers of Damaracherla village was found to be Rs. 61029.17 per hectare. The net change in profit gained by IPM farmers in Gudepally village was Rs. 132926.1 per hectare due to adoption of IPM practices compared to Non- IPM farmers. The same in case of IPM farmers of Damaracherla village was found to be Rs. 59411.99 per hectare compared to Non- IPM farmers. The higher net profits from the ICM and IPM farms may be due to realization of higher yields, more benefits from ITC like getting higher prices besides a premium and disposal of produce on the field itself, which helps in reduction of transportation and marketing costs from total cost of cultivation. Prevalence of natural calamities that resulted in lower yields and adverse effect on quality of produce could be attributed for significant difference in the net change in profit realized by the farmers in two villages. Hence, it can be inferred that adoption of ICM practices in chilli cultivation was economically viable.
