*Corresponding Author's E-mail :


An experimental was conducted with French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), var. Anupam, a bush type variety, in a randomized split block design with twelve treatments and a control of four replications each to evaluate the cost-benefit ratio with organic farming at Kothavaripalli village, near CTM, Madanapalle, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, India. T0 was kept as control -without any chemical or organic inputs, T1 with chemical fertilizers NPK @ 60 : 75 : 75 kg/ha, T2 - Vermicompost @ 8 t/ha, T3 - Jeevamrutha @ 2100 lts /ha, T4 - Panchagavya @ 3% as foliar spray, T-Straw mulch @ 10 t/ha (15 cm above soil), T6 - Chemical fertilizers NPK (100%) + Panchagavya, T7-Vermicompost + Panchagavya (T2 + T4 ), T8-Jeevamrutha + Panchagavya, T9- Straw mulch + Panchagavya, T10-Straw mulch + Chem. Ferti. NPK (100%) + Panchagavya, T11-Straw mulch + Vermicompost + Panchagavya and T12-Straw mulch + Jeevamrutha + Panchagavya. Application of vermicompost (8 t/ha) + Panchagavya (3%) resulted the highest cost-benefit ratio of 3.25 followed by T11 (3.22) and T12 (3.06). The cost-benefit ratio was found to be minimum for control (1.74). The net profit from T11 was highest (Rs. 1,92,416/-) followed by T12 (Rs. 1,79,716/-) and T7 (Rs.1,79,316/-). Both T7 and T11, which showed a higher cost-benefit ratio, indicated that vermicompost utilization along with other organic practices increased cost-benefit ratio and increased the net profit to the farmer.
