Abstract: Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merill) is a leguminous crop and belongs to family leguminoceae. It is originated in Chaina and it is a major oilseed crop in the world. Soybean is known as the “golden bean”, “miracle crop” etc, because of its several uses. It is an excellent source of protein and oil. In India the area under soybean was 106.94 lakh hectares and production was 126.77 lack metric tonnes. In Maharashtra, soybean occupied an area 38.70 lakh ha area with production 48 lakh metric tonnes. The area under soybean in Beed district is 76.20 thousand hectars with the total production of 119.45 thousand metric tonnes and area under soybean in Ambajogai tahsil is 34.60 thousand hectars with total production of 61.80 thousand metric tonns in 2012-13. Multistage sampling design was adopted in selection of district, lehsil. villages and soybean growers. Soybean growers were stratified into two groups like MAUS-71 (48) and JS-335 (48). In all 96 soybean growers were selected for study. The tabular analysis, functional analysis and frequency and percentage analysis were use to analyze the data in present study. In order to determine profitability of soybean, costs and returns are important aspects. It is production and productivity was negative and non-significant. It summarized the socio-economic characteristics of soybean grower as under age of MAUS-71 and JS-335 soybean grower were more than 47 year in both the cases family size was more than 6 members. Land holding of MAUS-71 soybean grower was 2.27 hectares while that of JS-335 grower was 2.69 hectares. Area under groundnut for MAUS-71 grower had 0.69 hectares while that of JS-335 grower has 0.84 hectares. It was observed that soybean grower was giving highly important to kharif jowar crop in cropping pattern on both MAUS-71and JS-335 soybean farms. Hired human labour and machine labour were found major item of expenditure in both cases of soybean. Per hectare, net profit was Rs 35548.50 and Rs 25738.44 in MAUS-71 and JS-335 soybean. MAUS-71 was higher profitable that JS-335. Output-input ratio of MAUS-71 was 1.71 while that of JS-335 was 1.52. In MAUS-71, elasticity of production of area under soybean, hired human labour, nitrogen, phosphorous and seed were significant. In JS-335, elasticity of production of area under soybean, machine labour, phosphorous and seed were significant. In general. High cost of soybean seed was major constraint and Reduce the soybean seed cost on use Owen preparation seed was suggested by soybean growers.
