Detrimental bio-invasion in the green revolution Belt of India: LSD multiple comparisons post hoc analysis

Sudhanand Prasad Lal, Sujeet Kumar Jha and Shrija Sinha

The present study was undertaken to understand the nitty-gritty of bio-invasion (wildlife, birds and stray cattle) in the green revolution states viz., Punjab and Haryana; as inter-district/zonal comparison has not been done so far. Primary data were collected during the agricultural year of 2016-2017 among 360 randomly selected respondents from 6 districts comprising all the 6 zones. The most affected district was Ropar followed by Rohtak, Rewari, Faridkot, Karnal and Patiala. The overall DB of green revolution belt was 1.975 (x̄ value), which connotes that on average green revolution belt respondents had faced the wrath of DI twice in the past 5 years. Post hoc analysis is done only if the F value of one-way ANOVA is significant. In this research both classical F and asymptotically F (Welch and Brown-Forsythe test) was significant at 1 percent level. LSD Multiple Comparisons Post hoc analysis revealed that Ropar had significant (P<0.01) distinction with all the randomly selected districts; while there was no statistically significant difference of Rewari with Rohtak and Faridkot. It can be concluded that if the invasion problem is resolved through fencing of agricultural land to prevent wild animals and stray cattle; discounted electronic bird repellent and community cattle-shed then the prospects of agriculture would further increase in the study locale.
