The study was conducted in district Swat during 2007 to make comparative cost benefit analysis of per acre rice production of different rice varieties. Primary data was collected through structured questionnaire. Five villages from three tehsils namely Kabal, Barikot and Matta were randomly selected. A sample size of 100 farmers was used and the respondents were randomly selected. For comparison, Cost-Benefit Analysis approach was used. The total per acre rice production of these varieties was amounted to Rs. 40000, 52500, 33600, 34000, 30400, 30400 and 68750 respectively. The same average cost amounted to Rs. 13565 was observed for all the varieties. The Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) of variety JP-5, Basmati-385, Sara Saila, Dil Rosh-97, Swat-1 and Swat-2 and Fakhr-e-Malakand was 2.24, 3.20, 1.80, 1.80, 1.46, 1.54 and4.36. The highest BCR value is observed for variety Fakhr-e-Malakand indicted the most profitable variety in terms of net production. Awareness about the cultivation of Fakhr-e-Malakand variety should be given as against the growing traditional varieties in district Swat.
