Employment Patterns and Income Generation of Farm Households in Integrated Farming of Bangladesh

Mohammad Taj Uddin and Hiroyuki Takeya

This study focused on the patterns of farm and off-farm employment considering gender structure and the incomes earned from different sources. However, conventional farming has not been able to generate the needed employment opportunities. Therefore, it is crucial to continue absorbing the ever-growing labor force through integrated farming which is considered a good source of increased income. The study revealed that unemployment decreased with the increases in farm size and farmers practicing integrated farming had few family labors surplus compared to the conventional farmers. Primary data collected from personal interviews with farmers was used. It is found from the analysis that the number of enterprises was the most significant factor in integrated farming, whereas working hours per week on off-farm activities by males had significant effect in conventional farming. It also implies that integrated farming is important not only for employment creation, but also for promoting the overall economic condition.
