Abstract:

The main variables of economic development have been regarded as Income, Investment and Saving. The increase in capital stock along with its efficiency directly influences the productive capacity of the economy for increasing the total output or income. However, the growth in capital is in turn directly dependent on the part of additional output which is not immediately consumed but is saved and available for investment or increase in capital. The farmers of the study area were having two main source of income, i.e. Agricultural and non-agricultural sources. The estimated total income received from all sources, on overall average basis, came to Rs. 332793.67 of which agricultural sources amounted to Rs. 303789.01 (91.28 per cent) and non-agricultural resources Rs. 16625.16 (4.99 per cent) and borrowing to 12389.50 (3.71 per cent). The total agricultural income (Rs. 332793.67 overall average) crop production accounted for the highest share being 77.98 per cent, followed by milk production 16.53 per cent, agricultural wages 3.06 per cent and hiring out of machinery 2.58 per cent. As regards different size groups, the percentage share of income received from crop production gave an increasing trend while that of milk production and agricultural wage earnings a decreasing trend with the rise in farm size. It indicates that marginal & small farms have to depend much more on milk production and agricultural wages for their livelihood. As regards different size group of farms, income received from non-agricultural wages stood highest (65.24 per cent) on marginal farm, while share of income received from business and salary was highest (41.96 and 58.03 per cent) on medium farms. Here again non-agricultural wages were the major source of income of marginal farmers. 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 & uncultivated land, land put to non-agriculture use, pasture land, area under bush forest and 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.
