  • Product Description

The book details the findings of the research conducted in Manapang Village Development Committee of Tanahun District of Nepal focusing on impacts of out-migration in agriculture. A comparative analysis was carried out between migrating and non-migrating households. Findings revealed that the average land holding size, irrigated land holding size, livestock holding, income from agriculture and investment of household income in agriculture were higher in non-migrating households than in migrating households. The marginal value productivity of labour in farm activities was found lesser than wage from non farm activities. The size of abandoned land was found significantly higher in migrating households than that of non-migrating households. Out-migration has significant negative contribution in annual gross agriculture production. High share of the remittances was used for consumption purpose but only 5 percent was used for agriculture purposes. Limited irrigated land, food sufficiency level, livestock holding and income from agriculture were found factors exerting pressure for out-migration.
