Abstract:

District Etawah falls in western part of Uttar Pradesh. The district has 8 blocks and 696 villages. The net sown area of the district is 1.48 lakh ha with cropping intensity of 210 %. Normal annual rainfall of the district is 792 mm. Three main levels of mechanization technologies need consideration: human power, animal power and mechanical power technologies, with varying degrees of sophistication within each level, on the basis of capacity to do work, costs, precision and effectiveness. After selection of variables, a questionnaire was prepared to collect primary data from Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh. A Stratified Multistage Sampling Design was applied considering district and blocks as strata. The villages were selected from each block of Etawah district using random sampling and 4 blocks out of 8 blocks of Etawah district were taken for the study. Then from each blocks, villages and then from each villages, 15 farmers were selected using random sampling. Primary data were collected from 600 farmers from 40 villages. The Mechanization index, Power availability, Total energy, Mechanical energy, Human energy is highest in Basrehar block significantly in comparison to other three blocks ie 0.953, 1.877 kW/ha, 1990.32 kWh/ha, 1930.57 kWh/ha, 59.59 kWh/ha,. The average value of Mechanization index, Power availability, Total energy, Mechanical energy, Human energy, cropping intensity, Irrigation intensity, farmers income and input cost in Etawah district is 0.9416, 1.53 kW/ha, 1250.59 kWh/ha, 1199.73 kWh/ha, 50.95 kWh/ha, 210 %, 799.84 %, Rs.143885 and Rs. 53729 respectively.
