Abstract:

The present study on economic analysis of soil health cards on production and productivity of major crops was conducted in Karnataka state with the focus on North Eastern Karnataka region. However the study area was confined to Raichur district as it is having the major area under paddy (21.01%) growing area in this region. Where in the primary data was collected by interviewing the farmers.  A total of 20 Soil health card using farmers and 20 Soil health card non using farmers were selected randomly for the study. The cost of cultivation of paddy was found higher in Soil health card non users (₹ 95,219/ha) than Soil health card users (₹ 92307 /ha). The yield of paddy was substantially higher in Soil health card using farmers (qtl 75.34/ha) than Soil health card non users (qtl 71.05 /ha) and B:C ratio was also higher for Soil health card users (1.58) compared to Soil health card non users (1.45). So the Soil health card is an instrumental tool for enhancement of yield and income of paddy farmers
