Abstract:

This study is based on the data collected from a sample of 120 farmers selected from amongst the selected villages within the selected markets/mandis. The whole sample design consists of multistage random sampling. The selection of the district forms the first stage in sampling. Bhiwani and Mahindergarh districts of Haryana were purposively selected to represent a case study. These markets are selected because these market were the vicinity of the research. One block was selected from each selected district of Mahandragarh and Bhiwani. The block was selected based on higher area under the pearl millet. From the district Bhiwani block Siwani was selected and from the district Mahindergarh block Mahindergarh was selected. From each selected block, two villages were randomly selected. All the pearl millet cultivators of the four selected villages were selected according to their size of operational holdings. They were divided into four size groups and these groups were categorized on the basis of their land holdings i.e. marginal, small, medium and large. The time series and cross sectional data was collected. In contrast, production is increasing in both Haryana and Rajasthan by more than 4per cent per annum.It was assumed that the Stover productivity was at 2.5 time that of grain yield, and it was the same across all state and season, which was the average of previous five years Stover to grain yield ratio. It was assumed that per capita consumption of 2004/05 level would be maintained by both urban and rural population in 2011 and 2020.With the increase in the size of holding among the different component of the total consumption, Livestock consumption forms the major portion constituting 54.15 per cent and 51.63 per cent of total consumption followed by family consumption i.e. 30.68 per cent and 30.69 per cent in Mahindergarh and Bhiwani districts, respectively.
