ABSTRACT The present study depicts the economics of horticultural produce and essential oil distillation of Damask rose (Rosa damascena L.) plantation in Punjab state of India. The study is based on the data collected from farmers in Punjab. Cost components were calculated on the basis of prevailing market prices of inputs and outputs. Cost of cultivation for producing an average flower yield of 942 kg/acre/annum worked out to be Rs. 36,647 /acre /yr. Cost of essential oil production and net returns were calculated as Rs. 38,617/ 264 gm oil and Rs. 20,783 /acre /yr, respectively. Damask rose oil production is a remunerative venture with Rs. 59,842 as net present value (NPV), 12.70 percent as internal rate of return (IRR) and benefit cost ratio (BCR) as 1.54. NPV of Damask rose oil production/ 4000 sq.m. was 202.34 % higher than that of wheat- paddy/ 4000 sq.m. cropping pattern.
