Farm Power Status and Its Utilization Pattern in Nalanda District of Bihar - A Case Study


Farm Power Status and Its Utilization Pattern in Nalanda District of Bihar - A Case Study



Ama-Agricultural Mechanization in Asia Africa and Latin America 40(2): 13-21



ISSN/ISBN: 0084-5841

This study is based on a survey of 95 farmers in Nalanda district of Bihar and was conducted through personal interviews of the farmers. The aim of study was to analyse the availability, demand/requirement and utilization of various sources of power for different farm operations and to project the future requirements of farm mechanization in Nalanda District. Maximum human power was available from small farm categories (6,980 h/ha), maximum animal power was available from marginal farm categories (115 8 h/ha), maximum tractor power was available from large farm categories (171.35 h/ha) and maximum stationary engine/electric motor power was available from small farm categories (819 h/ha). Peak demand for human power requirement was in January for all farm categories and in November for marginal, small and medium size farm categories for sowing rabi and potato crops. Maximum deficit of animal power was in November (106 h/ha). Large farm categories faced a deficit of animal power requirement in most of the months. Peak demand for tractor power requirement was in the months of March, May and November for all farm categories. Marginal, small and medium size farm categories faced a deficit of tractor power requirement in most of the months. Peak demand of stationary diesel/electric motor power requirement was in the month of April for all farm categories.
