Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken with a view to study the socio economic characteristics of maize growers in Karimnagar district of Telangana. The study was administered by selecting a sample of 120 respondents from 10 villages. Multistage sampling design was used in selection of district, mandal, village and sample growers. Relevant data on various aspects of socio economic status were illuminated using a pre tested structured schedule and through personal interview method. Results revealed that majority of the growers were of middle age (47 yrs) and were educated up to primary school level. A vast majority of the respondents had medium family size and agriculture as main source of occupation. In addition to this, most respondents had small land holdings and low area under maize cultivation. In regards to number of livestock’s and investments in commonly used assets, it was gathered that majority of the respondents had medium number of livestock’s and low level of investments in commonly used assets. With respect to elasticity of production, results revealed that coefficient of multiple determinations (R2) were 0.78 which indicated 82 per cent of variation in maize production was due to variation in all explanatory variables. F-value was calculated to 6.29 which indicated that some of the variables were significantly influencing the production.
