One of the feasible ways of increasing the farm income and to withstand the sharp fluctuations in price structure and creating employment opportunities by cultivate the different cropping systems in limited farm land. Primary data have been collected from the sample rice farms with the help of pretested questionnaire through personal interview with respondent farmers. The results revealed that total human labour employment as whole in the cropping system-I, II and III were 242.56, 258.43 and 322.61 man days per hectare respectively. Human labour use was higher for cotton in cropping system-I compared to other crops. The bullock labour utilization was 3.48 cattle pair days per hectare in the cultivation of groundnut. Machine power for cropping system-I was 15.98, cropping system-II 21.49, cropping system-III 26.70 hours per hectare.
