    production in District Jhang, Punjab, Pakistan. A production function was estimated by using the regression technique. Results of the study showed that tubewell irrigation accounts for about 19 percent of the total cost of production of wheat crop. The results also showed that land holding, use of fertilizer, experience of farming and sodium absorption ratio were major factors affecting gross value product (GVP) of wheat. Adjusted R2 of the study was 0.59 which shows the goodness of fit of data. Significant F-test showed that results were overall significant. The findings of the study would help policy makers to formulate policies promoting wheat production through efficient and wise utilization of ground water resources.
