Example text

W e find the classic example of this in Vadamalaipuram in 1936, where no tenants were forthcoming at any higher rent than 0*45 tons millet per hectare, and land commanded a price of only 5*7-6-8 tons. Highest rents were paid inGangaikondan in the same period because tenants had nowhere else to go; but by 1961 when there was competition for their labour in local industry, tenants were only forthcoming at a rent of 1 -3 tons paddy per hectare - little more than half the 1936 l e v e l - a n d in consequence the price of land fell from 43-4 to 23-8 tons.

Milk per cow per day, and 5 buffaloes averaging 9*1 kg. milk per day. Lactation periods were approximately 285 days for cows, and 310 days for buffaloes. Employing the above system of weights, the local price weight of fresh milk was 249, of which Eruvellipet's plutocrat was the sole supplier. Yields per lactation are three times or more the yield obtained from indigenous cattle in South India; these have been obtained through selection, the introduction of improved strains for breeding purposes and regular feeding.

But in Eruvellipet, marginal product may have been higher than average at this point and only near to zero when reaching about 2,000 man-hours/hectare/year. 1 Combining male and female labour days at their respective wage rates of 4 kg. and 2 kg. per day, the average wage paid to labour for a day's work was 3-36 kg. - the reward which may be expected in an economy producing at or near the minim for subsistence; but the average product of 10-6 kg. per man day of labour was well above the subsistence minimum, indicating that the soils of Eruvellipet are highly productive given adequate water for irrigation.
