FARM POWER SOURCES AND UTILIZATION
Evaluation of power sources helps to know the power available for agricultural. Thesis necessary to know, because power input to agriculture affects the volume of agricultural production. In view of this, the farm power sources available in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State were evaluated and it was found that human power internal combustion and energy from the sun were available.

4.1 Sumamry Of Findings
1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Power is required to develop and execute the activities involved in agricultural production. In every part of the world power supply is almost directly proportional to agricultural production.
In view of the above facts, an appraisal of farm power sources available to Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State was nursed. An articulated evaluation will help to highlight power needs of agricultural activities that will lead to improved food and fibre production.
1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Very little or no work had been earlier on this study in the local government area, thus documentation on farm power sources and utilization in the local government area has been minimal. This study therefore attempts to solve this problem by identifying, analyzing and appraising. The various sources of farm power available and how they are put to use in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State.
1.3 OBJECTIVE OF STUDY
This work has the objective of providing valid in formation on the different farm power sources available in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Secondly, to make known the best possible way of utilizing or applying available power.
Thirdly, it is meant to help determine the best application of available power in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State at a minimal cost.
The study wills also increasing agricultural production along side with the processing of agricultural produce through the efficient utilization of available power.
1.4 JUSTIFICATION OF STUDY
i. To determine the amount of energy available from the various farm power sources with a view to suggesting ways of improvement.
ii. To identify the stages agricultural or other human activities where the farm sources are mostly utilized and to prepared ground for further research.
