Abstract: 

AGRICULTURAL MECHANIZATION IS A MULTIDIMENSIONAL ACTIVITY THAT INCLUDING MANY VARIED FACTORS AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ITS APPLICATION IS CHANGE IN PRODUCTIVITY OF LABOR, MACHINERY, LAND AND FERTILIZER INPUTS. IN THIS STUDY, EFFECTS OF COMBINAT APPLICATION AS A NEW MECHANIZATION TECHNOLOGY ON PRODUCTIVITY INDEX OF WHEAT PRODUCT WERE ANALYZED IN FARS PROVINCE. THIS PROVINCE HAS HAD SOME ACHIEVEMENT IN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS AND MECHANIZATION DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN VERY IMPORTANT IN THIS PROVINCE. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT IN BOTH CONDITIONS INCLUDING BETWEEN TWO GROUPS THAT USING OLD METHODS OF SEED CULTIVATION AND NEW ONE AND IN THE GROUP OF COMBINAT USERS, GROSS MARGIN HAVE INCREASED 4.47 AND 6.70, RESPECTIVELY. NEVERTHELESS, LOW EXPERIENCE OF FARMERS WAS CAUSED MORE USAGE OF FERTILIZER AND HEREUPON, INPUT PRODUCTIVITY OF THE COMBINAT GROUP WAS LOWER THAN THE OLD TECHNOLOGY GROUP. IN THIS SITUATION, NOTWITHSTANDING HIGHER GROSS MARGIN OF COMBINAT GROUP, PRODUCTIVITY OF THIS GROUP WAS LOWER THAN OTHER ONE. THUS, WE CAN SAY THAT WITH OBSERVANCE OF PROMOTIVE RECOMMENDATION BY WHEAT FARMERS ABOUT CORRECT AND OPTIMUM USE OF INPUTS CAN IMPROVE INCREASED EFFECTS OF GROSS MARGIN AND PRODUCTIVITY OF COMBINAT. THEREFORE, INVESTMENT IN COMBINAT DEVELOPMENT MUST BE SYNCHRONOUS WITH OTHER TECHNICAL RECOMMENDATION IN ORDER TO INCREASING OF WHEAT FARMERS INCOME, PRODUCTIVITY AND WELFARE.
