Abstract: A case study was conducted at Igoo and Sakti village of cold arid desert of Ladakh region during 2017, with the Objectives to study the analyze per kanal costs, returns and profitability of Pea production in the study area and to evaluate the cost of production per quintal of Pea on different size farm groups. Data were collected using structured questionnaire on farmers output, production input variables (farm size, labour used, compost, cost of seed, harvesting cost). All data on resource use, production cost and outputs were converted to per kanal equivalent. A total numbers of 20 farmers were surveyed in Igoo and Sakti village. A random survey of farmers having large areas under Pea are surveyed. It reveals that overall cost of cultivation of pea crop was Rs/Kanal 7811.66/-. The large contribution have been observed in family labour use with Rs 15333.33/- and shared of 50.13 percent to the total cost. The cost of cultivation of Pea per Kanal in small, medium and large groups is Rs. 23435, Rs 28870 and Rs. 39450 respectively and the average cost of cultivation is 30585 & cost of cultivation per kanal is 7811.66.
