Based on the data collected from 60 persons each in two villages which are selected using multistage purposive sampling technique, the paper found that paddy has given prominent importance by all farmers in respect of using different inputs as it has been recognized as the crop in which maximum percentage change has been noticed in most of the inputs cases. But a negative trend has been emerged in respect of using NPK in case of same crop. It was concluded that PACS has proved beneficial for paddy and wheat crop as results shown that the cropping pattern has gone against cotton and mustard crops, owing to the facilities made available by credit agency.
