The total income from 1-acre Mango cultivation

In mango commercial yield starts from 4 – 5 years after planting so, here we are  taking 5 th into the consideration to calculate profits. In the initial years, we can supplement the maintenance cost with returns obtained from intercrops. At Chandrapur fruit market, Maharashtra Mango was sold at an average price of Rs. 4, 000 per quintal dated on 31- 07- 2019. During the season also it can be sold at a minimum price of Rs. 3, 000 per quintal. So, for selling 5 tonnes the farmer will get

Rs. 50 x 3, 000 = 1, 50, 000.

The net profit from 1-acre Mango farming

The net income involved in 1 acre Mango cultivation is in 5 th year is:

The net income = gross returns – maintenance cost

Rs.1, 50, 000  – Rs. 31, 250 = Rs. 1, 18, 750

So, net profit in cultivation of one acre Mango field is Rs. 1, 18, 750.

  1. Hello Sir,
    Kindly give details of manures /fertilizers and pesticides and insecticides and inputs to mango cultivation.


  3. Hello Jagdish,
    Excellent article on mango cultivation cost and profit analysis. But here’s a quick question: your cost estimates seem too low from my experience. For instance, labour cost is @ Rs.350 for male and Rs.250 for female per day plus to and fro transport costs from their village to the farm. Similarly, wire mesh fencing cost is way above what you have estimated. your costing also does not factor in cost of money if the project is rolled out with bank financing.
    In this scenario how does one fit the cost to benefit ratio for mango cultivation? Do you still think this can be a profitable venture, especially in retirement?

  4. hello, sir! this is a good project that I interested to do in the future can you help me how develop my own project proposal?

  5. Now it’s flowering in my mango 100 pl lants in 1.75 acre. I have used dap fertiliser for 50 plants last month .now another 50 plants which was water logged for 3 months now dried , can I apply now
