Evaluation of Techno-Economic Aspects of Mechanized Cotton Harvesting Process

Authors(3) :-Prof. P. S. Nerkar, V. S. Gautam, M. M. Bedekar

Cotton is one of the most important crops throughout the history of India and it also plays an important role in social and economic aspects of the Indian society in the present age. Recent technological advances and trade liberalization have made India a major player in international cotton markets. The overall objective of this paper is to assess the competitiveness of Indian cotton producers and potential implications for India as a competitor in the world cotton market if it mechanizes harvesting of cotton. The study reveals that the net income of the Indian cotton farmers will increase considerably with the mechanization of cotton harvesting. In that scenario, the cotton production in India can increase considerably which can impact the international markets.
