Agriculture sector remains the largest sector providing means of livelihood in Karnataka. However, the sector faces various challenges. Vagaries of monsoon, labour issues, market problems, non-scientific methods of cultivation etc cause decline in the yield of the crops. One of the problems faced by the farmers is unawareness regarding the resource allocation. Low or increased use of input use, directly affects the yield and income level of the farmers. Thus, the present study aimed at studying the resource allocation in the major crops. The results revealed that plant protection chemicals and fertilisers were over used by the farmers which is declining the returns whereas FYM was underutilised. Thus, by incorporating higher quantity of FYM, bio fertilisers and micro nutrients, the soil quality can be enhanced and the yields levels can also be improved.

Key words: FYM, Jowar, Bajra, and Pulses (Tur and gram)
