India’s growth in agricultural mechanization during last decades

Author(s): Dr. Umesh Kumar Dhruw, Er. DK Roy and Er. PD Verma
Abstract: Farm mechanization is a crucial component of contemporary agriculture. In addition to lowering cultivation costs and human labor, it increases production. Mechanization enhances the quality and value addition of the crop while also increasing worker safety and comfort and the efficiency with which other inputs are used in agriculture. Improved machinery not only allows farmers to cultivate a second crop but also increases productivity and production. The role of farm mechanization has shifted in improving agricultural production as well as productivity through time-saving of field operation and by enabling proper utilization of critical inputs. Utilizing appropriate farm machines for field preparation can save time and energy and enables the farmers to sow the crops in time and thus obtain higher yields. Farm mechanization also improves quality of life by reducing drudgery and by providing respectability to farm operators. The annual share of power availability per ha 2020-21 was 2.761 kW. During the year 2020-21, it increased by 47.03 percent as compared to 2011-12 (262.921 million kW) of a source of power accessibility in India. During the year 2022-23, in India, sales of power tillers and tractors were recorded at 35,000 and 835,000, respectively.
