Abstract:
Majority of rural population primarily depends on agriculture and allied activities for their livelihood in India. Lots of efforts are being done to improve the standards of living of these people. One such effort is to give impetus to agri-business and encourage rural youth. In fact, now a day’s most of the agricultural activities are being viewed as business activities like organic farming, mushroom cultivation, bee-keeping, poultry farming, value addition, high tech agriculture etc. Actually, agriculture enterprise is a plan that can lead to economic self – sustain of farmers. Agripreneurship is not only helpful in generating employment opportunities for rural people but is good for urban consumers also. Inspite of various efforts to upgrade agri-preneurship in rural areas, agripreneurs are very less in number due to several challenges in the area. Lack of technical know-how, lack of institutional support, lack of government and bank support, risk and marketing issues, lack of extension services, inadequate market knowledge, high cost, less government subsidies and polices, lack of better infrastructure facilities are some oof the major constraints being faced by agripreneurs and specially first generation agripreneurs. This paper is an attempt to study constraints and barriers faced by first generation agripreneurs of Haryana state.
