Farm mechanization: Its status in the state of Odisha, India


Author(s): Sourav Ghosal, Srabani Ghosal, Jyoti Ranjan Rath and MK Ghosal

Abstract: Farm mechanization is a vital component in agriculture to increase the production and productivity of crops due to the achievement of timeliness in farm operations, reduction in drudgery of labour and saving time and cost of cultivation. This paper discusses the trends of mechanization in agriculture in the state of Odisha, India. It is found that there is a large scope for mechanization in agriculture in the coming years, as there is a minimal share of the machine labour in the total costs of cultivating the principal crops. Farmers of the state are also gradually switching from traditional system to the mechanized methods of crop cultivation. It is therefore indispensable to take extensive programme, either at the Govt. or non-Govt. level to enhance the agricultural mechanization to a greater height. There is the high need of adaption of suitable machines of small capacity and low cost, especially in tillage, transplanting, weeding, harvesting and threshing operations. Massive awareness programme need to be carried out among the farmers of Odisha for popularizing the need based and crop specific machinery, available at the various research organizations of the state and the country for enhancing mechanization.
