Big Farmers of Punjab- Some Preliminary Findings of a Sample Survey

This paper presents some partial and preliminary results of a sample survey of large farms in Punjab carried out in the summer of 1968-69. An idea of the expansion of large-scale farming in Punjab may be had from the fact that land owned by farmers with more than 20 acres increased by about 9.5 per cent between 1955-56 and 1967-68. This average, again, hides a significant range of variation in the rates of expansion. Farms of the size group 20-25 acres expanded by only 4 per cent whereas those in the size-group 100-150 acres expanded by 40 per cent.
