Agricultural mechanization in Gujarat
MetadataShow full item record
The growth of agricultural implements used in Gujarat was examined on the basis of Livestock Census data of 1951, 56, 61, 66, 72. The total power now available on Gujarat farms comes to 0.6 hp/hect; if pumping sets are excluded, it is 0.34 hp/hect. This is lower than Punjab, and a little higher than the national average. The mechanization in Gujarat seems to be of this type which has taken over more of bullock functions than of human Labour. This may change however in future; some gaps in implements data, design and development.
