The average quantity of fertilizer use per hectare of the cropped area in 2015-16 was found as 206 kg for the State as a whole. During the same period, it was 293.95 kg in Karnal district, which comes out 142 per cent of the State average. In total consumption of NPK the proportions of N, P and K were respectively, 80.29, 17.34 and 2.36 per cent in Karnal district whereas for the State as a whole these were 77, 21.5 and 1.5 per cent respectively. The study revealed that on small farms one hectare in size of holding increased the expenditure on fertilizers by Rs. 1383.20. However, on large holdings the one hectare increase in size of holding resulted in an increase of Rs. 1253.40 on fertilizers expenditure. The percentage of irrigated area on small farms was more as compared with large farms, the expenditure on fertilizer per hectare of net area shown is also more on large farms than the small farms. It was found that the extent of fertilizer consumption is dependent upon mainly on two factors namely area fertilized and the quantity of fertilizers used per hectare. Both of these in turn are dependent upon several factors namely; the economics of fertilizer use and ability of farmers to purchase fertilizers.
