    productivity in Punjab were studied in the Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan during 2007. A sample of 360 farmers was collected from study area (Lower Chenab Canal) by using multistage sampling technique for analysis purpose. Econometric analysis was carried out by using "Pre and Post" approach. The results of study were according to a priori expectations. It was found that 1 percent increase in surface irrigation cost could decrease yield by about 0.2 percent. Coefficient of fertilizer cost was also significant showing that 1 percent increase in fertilizer cost would increase sugarcane yield by 0.15 percent. Coefficient of location dummy was negative and non-significant. After introduction of reforms cropping intensity increased from 163 to 182 percent leading to 12 percent increase after IMT.
