Impact of vegetable production on income and employment of small farms. The impact of diversification of agriculture towards vegetables was assessed on farm income and employment using household level information from the western Uttar Pradesh. The results clearly revealed that vegetable production is more profitable and labour-intensive as compared to cereals and it fits well in the small farm production systems. The small farms are relatively more efficient in production and own more family labour in contrast to large farms. Women are also benefited as the vegetable production engages relatively higher women labor in various operations.
