||The design of improved agricultural machines requires a knowledge of the anthropometric data of the operators. A survey was conducted to collect the anthropometric dimensions of male farmers aged between 20 and 30 years in the north eastern region of India. Thirty-three anthropometric dimensions were measured from 280 male farmers in seven states of the region. These dimensions were compared with those of the northern, central, eastern, southern and western regions of India. It was found that the body dimensions of the farm youth of the north eastern region were mostly lower than those from other regions except southern and eastern regions. They were also compared with those of China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Germany, Britain and the USA. All the dimensions were lower than those from other parts of the world.
