The study of resource structure and level of investment forms the basis for successful farm planning, farm growth and expanding economic opportunities on farms. This calls for an intensive enquiry of the resources and the extent to which advances in farm technology have been adopted by the farmers. The average size of operational farm holding came to 0.77 hectare. It was 0.47 hectare for marginal farms, 1.60 hectare for small farms and 3.33 hectares for medium farms. The average size of family of the sample farms came to 7.14 members. It was a little small being 5.70 members on marginal farms as compared to 6.81 members on small farms and 7.00 members on medium farms. The average investment in fixed capital including land on per farm household basis came to Rs. 145294.54, which varied from Rs. 71770.74 on marginal farms to Rs. 348515.20 on small farms and further to Rs. 778670.55 per farm on medium farms. The analysis of cropping pattern showed that wheat accounted for the highest area being 42.63 per cent, followed by paddy 37.80 per cent, rapeseed and mustard 8.30 per cent, maize 3.03 per cent and arhar 2.61 per cent and to total cropped area. The main source of irrigation in the area were tube wells and canal which on an average irrigated 96.70 per cent and 3.30 per cent of the total irrigated area. The average intensity of cropping on farms came to 170.50 per cent which was a little lower being 169.60 per cent on marginal farms and a little higher 171.77 on medium farms. District Mau of Eastern U.P. has an important place in terms of fertility and agricultural advancement in India. The land of this part is Loamy which is most fertile. The total geographical area of the district is 171624.00 ha. out of which 560.00 ha., 2504.00 ha., 14533.00 ha., 3706.00 ha., 1915.00 ha., 25560.00 ha., 194.00 ha., 3596.00 ha., 119056.00 ha., 80787.00 ha., 199843.00 ha., 114689.00 ha. and 193991.00 ha. is area under forest, barren cultivated waste, present fallow land, other fallow land, barren and uncultivated land, land put to non-agriculture use, pasture land, area under bush forest & garden, net sown area, area sown more than once, grass area sown (rabi, kharif, jayad and land prepared for sugarcane), net irrigated area and grass irrigated area respectively.
