Land holdings

The characteristic of land ownership and operational holding is one of the important component of social and economic structure. Apparently, land is the main assest in the rural areas and farm income is usually judged on the basis of land possession by the people. This is the rationale that land holding pattern is examined here. The results presented in Table 2.7 reveals the fact that the agriculture of the district is dominated by small farms. The dominance of marginal and small farms clearly indicate that the development strategy for agriculture in the district must be refocused on the small farm sector.
