Abstract:

Mechanization gap and assessment of farm mechanization requirement for each operation in different crops of Karnataka was measured and analyzed. Data was gathered from a sample of 240 farmers in which paddy, maize and pigeon pea growers constituted 80 each. The mechanization gap in paddy for combine harvester and paddy reaper was 100.00 per cent and 77.00 per cent respectively that amounts to requirement of 4 combine harvesters and 7 paddy reapers. In maize, equipment-wise gap for M B plough, cultivator, rotovator and disc harrow was 23.00 per cent, 50.00 per cent, 33.33 per cent and 25.00 per cent respectively that amounts to requirement of 6 M B ploughs, 11 cultivators, 7 rotovators and 4 disc harrows. The mechanization gap for combine harvester of pigeon pea was 100.00 per cent that amounts to requirement of 4 combine harvesters.
