The agricultural development model of Punjab was based on a set of measures aimed at technological up-gradation of traditional modes of production. Though, the state agriculture has become highly mechanized with ample availability of resources, there is a need to analyse the use efficiency of the same. The present paper, based on 225 farm holdings for different categories of farmers spread over three zones for the period 2012–13, exhibits that the agricultural resources like family labour, tractors, electric motors, diesel engines were surplus in the state agriculture. The family labour was utilized to the extent of 57.70per cent, while electric motors, tractors and diesel engines were utilized to the extent of 85.07, 32.70 and 7.47 per cent, respectively. For comprehensive, rapid growth, profitable and sustainable development of agrarian sector, optimum utilization of the existing resources is a pre-requisite and thus there is a need to manage the use of resources efficiently.
