Abstract:

Economic growth in India agricultural sector lags behind growth in industry and services, creating an ever widening rural-urban income gap. Agricultural mechanization plays a key role in improving agricultural production and productivity in developing countries. The average farm size in India is small 1.16 hand small and marginal land holdings less than 2.0 ha account for 85% of land holdings. Mechanization small and non-contiguous group of small farms is against economics of scale for individual ownership of farm machinery. The status of farm mechanization in India is analyzed by the trend in growth of mechanically power- operated farm equipment over traditional human and animal power operated equipment. It was observed that there was a direct correlation between farm- power availability and productivity during the past six decades. Haryana state of India has the highest tractor density per thousand hectare of net sown area of 84 tractors and followed by 76 tractors for Punjab against all India average of 33 tractors. The sale of transplanter, power weeder, combine harvesters, rotavator and thresher in India is growing at a compound annual growth rate CAGR of 50,50,28,20 and 10% respectively. The available farm power and productivity in India are expected to reach 2.2kW/ha and 2.3kW/ha, respectively by the year 2020.
