Abstract:

Livestock sector plays important role in Indian economy. The dairy industry can go a long way in augmenting the income of the farmers. The present paper focuses on the factors affecting farm income. The study was conducted in the two agroclimatic zones of Punjab state i.e. kandi and plain zone. From each zone two districts, one block from each district and further three villages from each block and fifteen farmers from each village were selected randomly. The data was collected with personal interview method. The annual income realized by farmers varied a lot in both the regions. In kandi area agriculture and dairy was almost equal contributor to farm income. Whereas, agriculture was major contributor to total farm income in the plain region. Extension contacts were positively and significantly correlated with income from dairy and agriculture in the kandi region. Operational land holdings and mass media exposure were positively and significantly correlated with income from agriculture in plain region. It is suggested that there is an urgent need to strengthen veterinary extension services in the state. Further mass media should be used more to create awareness among the masses regarding dairy farming.
