Abstract:
Farm women are the momentous contributors of agriculture and rural enterprises and play a potentially transformative role in agricultural growth in developing countries. In Indian agriculture, farm women are dominant work force and their attitude towards farming influences their productivity in farm operations. Therefore, the study intended to develop a scale to measure the attitude of farm women towards farming. Likert’s summated rating technique was adopted to construct the scale. This paper elucidates the scale development procedure in a stepwise manner from collection of statements to their final selection. The attitude scale consisted of 24 statements and scale reliability was calculated to the tune of 0.80. It is tacit that the scale would be useful in further studies for determining the attitude of farm women towards farming.
