Tumkur district is well known for flower production. It is the major flower-growing district in Karnataka. Tumkur district stands first in area and production of chrysanthemum flower cultivation. Hence, Tumkur district has been selected for the study purposively. The area under chrysanthemum is increasing at a higher rate (14.36 per cent per annum) in Tumkur but in case of Karnataka as a whole the growth in area was 5.86 percent per annum while productivity of chrysanthemum flower (−2.40 percent) in Tumkur district found to be negatively growing. Further it could be observed from the study that, per hectare cost of cultivation of chrysanthemum flower was 61767. And the average annual gross return realized per ha, by the respondents amounted to 190541. Thus, it could be summarised that cultivation of chrysanthemum flower provided assured return of 128773 per ha even after recovering the fixed costs and variable costs.
