Empirical Research of Agricultural Mechanization on the Effect of Increasing Famers’ Income

Zhizhang WANG, Hanlin SUN


Agricultural investments can not only improve the operating efficiency of agricultural production and increase the farmers’ family operational income, but also save the labor force of agricultural production, and let farmers be in non-agricultural production and management, and enhance rural residents’ income from wage and salary. This paper analyzed the impact of farmers’ income from the perspective of agricultural mechanization. The paper selected the data from 1981 to 2011 to establish the model of empirical analysis, to test through the unit root, cointegration and Granger causality and to conduct the VAR analysis. It considered that mechanization had a significant effect on increasing famers’ income. The increase of farmers’ income can effectively promote agricultural mechanization. At last, it put forward the corresponding policy suggestion on the basis of empirical results.
