The major determinants which affect both gross returns and profitability of a crop viz, yield, weighted price and cost are in favour sampled farmers under high yielding farming. In case of gram crop, higher yield rates and output-input ratio are the important indicators than weighted price and cost in explaining high profitability of sampled farmers under high yielding farming in comparison to farmers under low yielding farming.
