A Socio-Economic Analysis of Duck Farmers of Tripura

Supritam Das, Saidur Rahman, Samares Kumar Das, Girin Kalita, T. C. Tolenkhomba.

The present study was conducted to assess the socioeconomic status of duck farmers in Tripura. A stratified random sampling technique was used to identify 100 respondents for the collection of data through a personal interview by using a pretested questionnaire. The result obtained from the study revealed that 70.00 percent of farmers belonged to the middle age group (35 to 50 years). Most of the farmers were married (94.00%). Majority of the farmers were found to be educated up to primary school (34.00%). Almost all the families were headed by a male (99.00%). The average number of ducks were 9.90/household. No farmers found to be rearing ducks only as a sole occupation. Highest proportion of farmers were having farming experience of 9-18 years in duck rearing. Almost in all families, a male member of the family was the owner of the assets and resources. Most of the farmers were having medium (50.00%) and low level (39.00%) of knowledge on duck farming. None of the farmers received any type of formal training on duck farming. There is a great potential to increase the socioeconomic status of the farmers by increasing the duck production in Tripura by adopting improved managemental practices.

Key words: Socio economic status, Duck Farming, Tripura, Duck farmer
