The current research was carried out in the Bhiwani district of the state of Haryana due to the greater
area of onions being grown there. The current research concluded that the cost of production per quintal
in the studied region was Rs. 599.37. The major cost incurred on items included rental value of land (Rs.
18765.00), fertilizers (Rs. 3898.21), plant protection (Rs. 1582.54) and seed cost (Rs. 9212.31). The
average yield of onion was 134.87 q/acre. The average variable cost was Rs. 48450.39. The gross returns
per acre were Rs. 182074.50 and net returns were recorded Rs. 101911.28. While channel-I was observed
to have the greatest disposal of onion produce, channel-III was determined to be the most effective of
the different marketing channels. It was shown that onion producers might increase their profits up to
six months of storage before they began to lose money.
