Abstract:

Mechanization is important and useful as it takes place in almost every face of human endeavor to meet required target and to boost efficiency. This study was conducted to find the impact of the variables on the adoption of farm mechanization. Multi-stage random sampling technique was employed for selection of the 160 respondents. Pretested interview schedule was used for the collection of data. Linear regression model use used to analyse the factors affecting the productivity of wheat and rice crop. It was found that the variable affecting rice productivity was primary tillage (R2= 0.19, p= 0.001), variables effecting wheat productivity were use of irrigation, primary tillage and use of rotavotor. The study may be useful in improving the design and development of new farm machines and also for incorporating suitable changes in the existing design.
