Abstract:
India has the largest potential for paddy output in the world and also the second largest exporter of rice in the world. Paddy is cultivated at least twice a year in most part of India, the two seasons being known as rabi and kharif respectively.
Land is important factor for agricultural production has different types of soil possessing inherent quality variations which hinder the enhancement of agricultural output beyond certain level even by the judicial application of other inputs. The major objectives of the study is to analyse the relationship between farm size and productivity in study area and to analyse the technical changes improve the productivity in the study area. The major findings of the study is agriculture is changing from subsistence level to market oriented one. However the ratio of net profit to total output is low. It decreases as farm size creases. As farm size increase output also increases but not proportionately, the ratio is relatively higher in tenant holding.
