P. Hussain Basha, Dr. B. Ramachandra Reddy

Abstract :

 Agro–based industries set up in rural areas have to be designed in such a way that they operate more as catalytic agents for developing infrastructure that would idge the gap between rural and urban economies. According to Bhattacharya, agro–based industries are classified into four types namely Agro–Produce Processing Units, Agro–Produce Manufacturing Units, Agro–Inputs Manufacturing Units and Agro–Service Centers. The place of the agro–based industries in the development of India is widely recognized and needs no emphasis. They can provide vast employment opportunities at comparatively low investment. The techniques of production adopted by the agro–based industries are simple and the machinery and equipment required by them is easily available. The share of all agro–based industries in India account for 35.3 per cent of the total industrial units in India 40.32 per cent share of total employment and 21.69 of the total value of industrial output, and 15.18 per cent of the net value added during the year 2016–17. The percentage of working capital, fixed capital and net income of agro–based industries to total industries is 21.26 per cent, 20.3 per cent and 13.96 per cent respectively. In this paper an attempt has been made to study the performance of sample agro–based industries covering the different aspects like capital structure, cost structure, employment, level of output and profitability in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh.
