Abstract:

Farm mechanization plays an important role for effective utilization of inputs which ultimately increase the productivity of land and labour by reducing the drudgery in farm operations in agriculture. There has been a substantial progress farm mechanization in India; however, its spread has been in the most uneven manner. Further, efforts to identify specific farm equipment, implements and machines, for different agro climatic zones, as well as their promotion in the respective zones has been lacking The study was conducted in Sonitpur and Udalguri districts under North Bank Plain Agro-Climatic Zone of Assam with 160 farmers to determine the extent of farm mechanization across different farm size groups. The findings revealed that majority of marginal (64.86%), small (64.52%), medium (72%) and large (72.73%) farmers had medium level of farm mechanization. In case of pooled sample, majority (67.5%) of the respondents had medium level of farm mechanization. The findings of the study indicated that majority of the respondents belonged to medium mechanization category. It implies that concerned agencies/ organizations should put more efforts in accelerating the adoption of farm mechanization by the farmers for sustainable agricultural production
