In Maharashtra, area under mandarin orange was about 1.28 lakh hectare with production and productivity 500 thousand MT and 3.9 MT/ha respectively. It was one of the major crop in Amravati district. Area under mandarin orange in Amravati district was 53662.39 hectares and production was 375.63 MT during 2012-13. Multistage sampling design was adopted in selection of district, tehsil, villages.

In this way from eight villages of four tehsils, eighty mandarin orange growers were selected. The techniques like tabular analysis, functional analysis; project analysis techniques were used to analyze the data in the present study. In order to determine the establishment cost of mandarin orange garden, thus the result revealed that establishment cost was ?326745.9. In order to determine profitability in mandarin orange production, costs and returns are important aspects. The result revealed that per hectare, net profit was ?52049.51 mandarin orange production. Cost-C was ?130155.56 in mandarin orange production. In general, output-input ratio was 1.40. Per quintal cost of production was ? 1087.3 7 in mandarin orange production. It observed that the present net investment for mandarin orange garden was ?297.38 per ha at 27 per cent discount rate for mandarin orange enterprise. Hence investment was found feasible. In general, it was observed that price spread was higher in Channel-II.
