Surplus quantities of farm can stimulate the development of both farm and non-farm sector, which ultimately helps in boosting the economy. Major foodgrain crops like rice, lentil and gram grow extensively in Nadia district of West Bengal. Study on socio-economic status of sample farmers are extensively covered in nadia district. This study reveals that 51 percent of farmer comes under age group of 31 to 50 years, In case of literacy 30 percent of farmer comes under class 10 to 12 years of schooling and sample farmers accounting 72% of the total have family size ranging 3-5 persons. Socio economic study also shows that total operational holding is highest for marginal farmers accounting 88.83 hectare but average size holding is highest for large farmers accounting 2.32 hectare. Study on marketed and marketable surplus in case of rice and lentil depicts that gross marketed surplus is highest for marginal farmers, whereas marketable surplus is highest for large farmers for both of these crop. But for gram both gross marketed surplus and marketable surplus is highest for large farmers. Study on the factors responsible for marketed surplus of foodgrain crop demonstrates that price impact is not prominent in rice and lentil except in case of gram.
