SEASONALITY OF FARM LABOUR USE IN AN AREA OF MYMENSINGH DISTRICT

This paper presents an empirical analysis of the seasonality of farm labour use on the basis of data collected from 160 rural households. Two seasonal peaks in labour use were observed. The first peak was observed in the months of March-May, while the second peak occurred in August. A comparison between farm size groups revealed that medium farms, compared to small farms and large farms, seemed to have made available higher amount of labour in the second peak. One of the reasons for this is that the medium farmers did not hire out much family labour so that they could meet the peak season labour demand.
