Abstract:

The present study to access the sustainable impact of watershed on the level of economics with especial reference to the beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries for the purpose two districts viz., Dimapur and Zunheboto were selected purposely, while two blocks from each district were randomly selected, out of that 8 numbers of watersheds areas were selected. In the second stage of sampling a multi-stage random sampling was used for the selection of beneficiary and non-beneficiary viz., 160 respondents (80 beneficiaries and 80 non-beneficiaries) by random method from the identified watershed areas. Further, study reveals that the net returns of overall net returns on the beneficiaries was Rs 18,31,370.00/- as compared to Rs 11,56,914.00/- the non-beneficiaries. While on the large farms was found to highest percent increase in net return over small, semi-medium and medium farmers, respectively. Also, it is found that the marginal propensity to consume (MPC) was highest for semi-medium farmers (0.91), as compared to medium (0.46), small farmers (0.44) and (0.05) large farmers, respectively. The overall average size of land holding of beneficiary is 21.75 ha as compared to non-beneficiary (21.16 ha). The main constraints faced by the farmers in the implementation of IWMP is the infra-structural problem of lack of machines, equipment, lack of awareness about finance facilities, lack of transportation facilities, lack of information system, lack of knowledge about bunds and also unavailability of marketing facilities etc.
