Abstract

A research investigation was conducted during rabi season 2023 at Horticulture research field, SHUATS (Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences) Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India to determine the economic variation and benefit cost ratio of ten different sweet potato genotypes. The production output of ten different sweet potato genotypes was computed by  Cost Benefit ratio (CBR).The Cost Benefit Ratio analysis indicated that  the most promising and profitable variety was Sree Nandini  followed by Sree Bhadra and  Kishan. The highest Cost Benefit Ratio (CBR) of Sree Nandini was 10.82, followed by Sree Bhadra 10.53 and Kishan with 8.3 respectively. According to the agro climatic condition of Prayagraj Sree Nandini Variety of sweet potato is recommended to farmers as it gives a profitable output.

Keywords: Benefit cost ratio, cost of production, genotype, sweet potato, tuber
