The present study is an attempt to estimate the cost returns and input use pattern of China aster producing farms in Chikkaballapura district of Karnataka, where China aster is cultivated extensively. Descriptive statistics were used for estimating the input use pattern of cultivation of Arka kamini and Arka Poornima variety of China aster farmers. The study is based on the primary data collected from 70 randomly chosen China aster cultivators comprising of 35 sample farmers each growing Arka kamini and Arka Poornima varieties of China aster. The results revealed that farmers realized 12 per cent higher gross returns (Rs. 2,56,500 acre-1 ) from cultivation of Arka kamini crop compared the cultivating check variety (Rs. 2,25,750acre1)which indicated cultivation of Arka kamini was more efficient compared to check variety. The results of the descriptive statistics analysis shows that the human labor, machine labor, seedlings, chemical fertilizers and plant protection chemicals of Arka Kamini variety was Rs. 11,012, 908 5,225 3,865 and 2,790 per acre respectively while in case of check variety was Rs. 9,842, 571, 6,588, 2,400, and 2,756 per acre respectively.
