Abstract:

Command Area Development project needs to actualize the vast untapped growth potential in agriculture, strengthen rural infrastructure, to support the development, promote the value addition, accelerate the growth of agri-business, generate employment in rural areas, secure a fair standard of living for the farmers and agricultural workers and their families, discourage the migration to urban areas and face challenges arising out economic liberalization and globalization. Multi stage random sampling technique was adopted for this study to select the ultimate unit of sample farmers Pipili block of Puri district was purposively selected as it was under command area development programme. So far as the resource use efficiently is concerned, a comparative study between beneficiary and non-beneficiary farmers showed that the independent variable inputs like human labour, manures and fertilizer of irrigation etc. had a positive impacts towards the crop yield as well as to goods income of the beneficiary farmers, Where as in non-beneficiary farmers, except manures and fertilizers other variable did not have much influence over the gross income. It is obvious that irrigation facilities in the command area might have provided better scope for efficient utilization of the variable resource which would enhance income of the respondents. So the hypotheses i.e. the resources are equally efficient in beneficiary and non-beneficiary farmers of different location is rejected.
