Abstract:

The study examined the energy use pattern of pigeon pea farmers in Vijayapura district of Karnataka. Data was gathered from a sample of 80 farmers through a structured interview schedule. Energy consumption was high in ploughing operation (1,059.60 MJ ha-1) followed by other harrowing (675.70 MJ ha-1). There was significant difference between small and large farmers in energy consumption through ploughing, harrowing, sowing, harvesting and threshing operations. Energy consumption through inorganic fertilizers was found to be the dominant source in all farm sizes. There was significant difference in energy consumption through human and machinery sources between small and large farmers.
