Sugarcane is a major cash crop of India, particularly in UP, Maharastra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujurat, and Foot hils of Uttarakhand. Sugarcane crop has an productivity of 70 tonnes/ha and an area of 4.2 mha. It plays a pivotal role in the national economy. Sugarcane is considered as one of the best cash crops in Orissa. It is grown in all the 30 districts of Orissa. The selected district Dhenkanal occupied 08th position in area (1.10 thousand ha), 09th position in productivity (72.10 thousand MTs) and 08th position in yield (68510 kg/ha) in 2013-14. The establishment of a sugar factory in Dhenkanal district has increased the prospect of this crop in the surrounding area. The difference between marginal value product (MVP) to FC (Factor Cost) was significantly lower and negative for human labour on marginal and small farms in both the regions revealing that this resource was used in excess and its use should be curtailed to realize higher return from this crop. The ratio of MVP to FC was more than unity and significant for area, fertilizers and irrigation indicating that use of these inputs should be increased to achieve higher output.
