Abstract:
Mustard is an important crop with the view of food and nutritional value and income & employment generation ability, possibility to raise the cropping intensity due to its nature of best fit with food grain production system. Keeping in view the importance of the mustard a study on cultivation of mustard was conducted in Lakhimpur block of Lakhimpur (Kheri) District. A sample of 100 farmers from, marginal, small and medium holding size were drawn through the proportionate random sampling technique, from five selected villages of Lakhimpur block, data were collected through personal interview method with the help of pre-structured schedule and secondary data were collected from block head quarter and district offices. More than 50% of the sample farmers were of marginal holding, very less number of medium size farmer were found. Overall average holding size was found to 0.97 hectare. Paddy, wheat and sugarcane were the major crops of Kharif, Rabi and zaid season respectively. Mustard under study was also allotted considerable acreage in cropping pattern; cropping intensity was inversely related with farm size. Similarly per farm and per hectare investment on building and livestock were also inversely related with farm size.
