A Cross Section Analysis Based on a Sample Survey

For our sample survey we selected the districts of Muzaffarnagar (U.P.) and Karnal (Haryana). Given the limitations of funds we restricted our enquiry to 50 farms, 25 in Muzaffarnagar for wheat and the other 25 in Karnal for rice. For selecting these farms, villages were selected purposively, keeping in mind the availability of irrigation facilities and the use of fertilizers as well as oil fueled machines.
