Abstract:
The present research was undertaken on topic "Entrepreneurial Behaviour of Onion Seed Producers” in Akola district of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra state’ conducted purposively on the basis of major area under Onion seed production. An exploratory design of social research was used for present study aims at assessing the entrepreneurial behaviour of Onion seed producers. Two talukas namely Akola and Patur of Akola district was selected for the study as they are having major area under Onion seed production and based on highest cultivable area. From each of the selected taluka’s five villages was selected purposively based on highest area under Onion seed production. Thus, total ten villages were selected for the study, total 120 Onion seed producers constitute the sample size for the study. 60 respondents were selected form Akola and Patur talukas each.
The findings of the research study relational analysis revealed that The entrepreneurial behaviour found significant co-relationship with socio-economic characteristics like age, education, occupation, land holding, annual income, cropping pattern, area under Onion seed production, experience in Onion seed production, extension contact, social participation and scientific orientation. The co-relation co-efficient between entrepreneurial behaviour of respondents with their profile result clearly indicated that selected characteristics of Onion seed producer i.e. education, annual income, experience in Onion seed production, extension contact, social participation had positive and significant relationship at 0.01 level of probability with entrepreneurial behaviour whereas, occupation, land holding, cropping pattern, area under Onion seed production and scientific orientation had positive and significant relationship at 0.05 level of probability. Hence, the null hypothesis was rejected for these characteristics and concluded that these characteristics were correlated with entrepreneurial behaviour. Further, remaining characteristics of Onion seed producer such as age of the respondent establish negatively significant relationship with their entrepreneurial behaviour. Hence, the null hypothesis was rejected with respect to these characteristics and it can be resulted that this characteristic was negatively correlated with entrepreneurial behaviour.
