Cost of cultivation for each treatment was worked out separately taking into consideration all the cultural practices followed and cost of inputs used in the cultivation in rupees. The experiment was carried out at department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Naini, Prayagraj in sandy loam soil during Rabi season of 2019-20 taking high yielding variety of maize i.e. K-27 recommended for U.P. The experiment was planned in RBD having 12 treatments with three replications. Three levels of nitrogen and three PGRs were used at various stages of maize growth. Perusal of table -1 revealed that gross return was maximum i.e. Rs. 96930.40/ha in treatment 10 (120 kg nitrogen /ha+NAA@40PPM),closely followed by treatment 12 (120kg nitrogen/ha +Putrescine@50ppm) i.e. Rs95849.91. Similar pattern was discernible from treatment 6 (100 kg nitrogen /ha+NAA @40ppm) with Rs.92311.71 and treatment 8 (100g nitrogen/ha+Putrescine@50ppm) i.e. Rs.91043.43. Net return (Rs/ha) of Rs 52172.80 was also maximum in treatment 10 which followed similar pattern as in gross return in treatment12 and closely followed in treatment 6 and 8 i.e. Rs 50232.31, 47836.21 and 45707.93, respectively. Benefit to cost ration when calculated, it also recorded maximum i.e. 2.17 in treatment 10 and followed the same pattern as in net return in treatment 12 and treatments 6 and 8 i.e. 2.10, 2.08 and 2.01, respectively. Thus it could be concluded that benefit to cost ratio to the farmer in terms of rupees/ha was maximum when nitrogen was used @120 kg/ha with PGR, NAA @40ppm in sandy loam soil in K-27 variety of maize compared to other doses of nitrogen with Putrescine and Mepiquat Chloride plant growth regulators.
