Note:  In 1991 census cultivators, agri. labours etc were included in main worker group and marginal workers were enumerated separately. But in 2001 census cultivators, agri. labours etc were enumerated either in main worker or in marginal worker group.  So no. of  marginal workers, agri. labours, hh industry worker etc were comparatively higher  than 1991.

Out of the total agricultural holding about 73 % belongs to small and marginal farmers having scattered and fragmented smallholding.
