Among all the Kharif crops, Niger seed is the only one which has been found with less than Rs. 10 per quintal increase in All India weighted average cost of production during 2018-19 over its previous year, i.e., Rs. 6. Other Kharif crops namely Paddy (common), Jowar (hybrid), Bajra, Ragi, Maize and Sesamum has been seen with per quintal increase of Rs. 49, Rs. 63, Rs. 41, Rs. 70, Rs. 87 and Rs. 99 respectively in All India weighted average cost of production of Kharif crops during 2018-19 over previous year.
