Abstract:
Youth are the most potent segment of the population of a country. Today's youth are the hope of the future. They are the real spirit of future agriculture. Young people look not only for their own livelihood, but also for the dignity and purpose in life. It is a well-known fact that only few young people engage in agriculture, although the majority of rural youth have the energy and enthusiasm to do well in agriculture and allied jobs. In this context, it is worthwhile to know the factors determining youth participation in agriculture and allied activities. Keeping this in view, a study was conducted in Warangal district of Telangana state with a total sample of 120 youth who are selected using simple random sampling technique. The data was collected from primary sources with structured interview schedule. The study employed descriptive statistics and rank order method to analyse the data. The study indicated that the variables such as farm size, farming experience, involvement in decision making, attitude towards agriculture, level of aspiration, scientific orientation, perceived role of youth had positive and significant relationship with participation at one per cent level. The variables education, Socio political participation, extension contact, mass media exposure, risk orientation had positive and significant relationship with participation at five per cent level. The remaining variables viz., age, sex, caste, family type, marital status had non-significant relationship with participation.
