The study was conducted in Kurukshetra district of Haryana state with the objective of analysing the involvement of man and women in paddy cultivation. Two blocks from Kurukshetra district were randomly selected i.e. Thanesar and Ladwa block. Two villages from each block were selected randomly. From Kurukshetradistrict 30 households from each village were selected randomly thus making a total sample of 120 households from different socio-economic categories. The study revealed that the average workload of men and women of low socio-economic strata were higher than those of medium and high socio-economic strata, in operation like Land preparation, Nursery raising, Manure and fertilizers application and Intercultural operation. It may therefore, be inferred that landless women and men performed more work in paddy cultivation than the women and men of medium and high socio-economic strata.
