Abstract:

The present study was conducted in four districts of Haryana state. Total 300 household from different landholding categories were selected from four villages of the selected districts. The findings of the study revealed that majorities of landless male as well as females were working as casual labour either in agriculture or in non-agriculture. Maximum time devoted by these respondents was as casual labour in non-agriculture (244 man days) followed by self-employed in non- agricultural (180 man days). Most of marginal land holding farmers were causal labours in agriculture, while females’ member almost equally worked as causal labour in agriculture and self-employed in agriculture. Maximum time of males was spent as causal labour in non-agriculture (200 man days), Females were devoting more time as self-employed in non-agriculture. Most of small, medium and large land holding males were self-employed in agriculture in both the zones. Maximum time devoted by these categories was also as self-employed in agriculture by small (210 man days), (250 man days) and large (180 man days) make farmers. Similar trend was observed for females, though they were spending lesser time in these activities.
