The study was conducted in Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.). The enquiry pertained to the agricultural year 2021-22. District and block namely, Etawah & Takha and Basher were purposively selected for the study due to higher concentration of garlic area. List of the respondents from selected blocks were prepared along with acreage under garlic cultivation, 120 respondents (Farmers) proportionally from each category of farms and classified into three categories i.e. marginal (below 1 ha), small (1-2 ha) and medium (2-4 ha & above). Overall average size of farms was found to be 1.56 ha, which varied from 0.81 ha on marginal, 1.74 ha on small and 4.60 ha on medium farms along with total cultivated area 187.48 ha on sample farms. Gross cropped area on marginal, small and medium size of farms accounted to be 1.90, 3.62 and 9.44 ha, respectively. Area under garlic on marginal, small and medium size of farms was found to be 0.20, 0.20 and 0.82 ha, respectively. Overall percentage share of garlic was observed 8.7 per cent among all crops. The maximum cropping intensity was observed (232.27 per cent) on marginal size of sample farms followed by small (207.33 per cent) and medium (204.89 per cent) with an average on sample farms came to 218.90 per cent.Pages: 111-113 | Views: 125 | Downloads: 10Download Full Article: Click Here
