Abstract

The study revealed that the overall total investment in crop and livestock farming together was
Rs.1, 05,113 per farm of which about 74 per cent of the total investment was made in crop farming,
while remaining 26 per cent in livestock farming system. The average per household investment on
a mixed farm unit varied from Rs. 48994 on marginal farm to Rs. 245889 on a large farm. It could be
further observed that as the farm size increased the investment per household in absolute term
increased both for the crop and livestock farming enterprises. It was also observed that as the farm
size increased, the proportionate investment on crop farming increased, while on the livestock
enterprise decreasing trend was observed showing that the large farmers concentrated more on the
crop enterprise mainly due to higher profit and non-availability of sufficient manpower. Animals/
livestock were primarily kept to produce milk for family consumption
