Comparative Economic Analysis of Hybrid V/S Conventionalsunflower Production Sindh Pakistan

Asif Ahmed Sethar


Sunflower is one of the four most important annual crops in the world grown for edible oil. In Pakistan although it was introduced as an oilseed crop 40 years back but its expansion in acreage and production is fluctuating due to various production and socioeconomic constraints. The comparison of total income gained, total costs associated and profit gained from two sunflower activities. Higher income (155401 Rs.), higher costs (98677 Rs.) and higher profits (56724 Rs.) were gained in sowing hybrid sunflower but conventional sunflower gave poor results lower income (75372 Rs.). Lower costs (57939 Rs.) and very low profits (17433 Rs.) were recorded. The question of higher cost of cultivation existed, and was confirmed, mainly because of high seed cost and not corresponding reduction in pesticide cost.
