Barley is globally one of the most important cereal grain crops after rice, wheat and maize. It is a short growing season crop and is highly drought tolerant. Earlier, barley was mainly used as livestock feed but now it is one of the grains used daily in human consumption. Rajasthan is among the largest coarse cereal producing states. India relies mainly on fossil fuels to meet its energy requirements. Currently India is the third largest Greenhouse gas emitter in the world after China and USA. Today, the results of climate change are clearly visible and they are going to worsen further if initiatives are not taken. In order to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and reduce climate change problem, government took several initiatives that promote adoption of green energy. Various schemes like Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, KUSUM scheme etc are few steps taken in the direction of sustainable development. Under these schemes, government provides subsidies and financial support to the farmers for setting up solar irrigation pumps on their field and barren lands. Crop production under solar irrigation system provides higher income as compared to the crop production under diesel irrigation system. It is because the irrigation charges or diesel charges in diesel irrigation system are saved in solar irrigation system. Hence, this study was performed to analyse the economics of bajra cultivation under solar irrigation system.
