Abstract:
The present study was conducted in Bhadrak District of Odisha to find out the role of rural women in farm activities. A total of 120 respondents were selected randomly for the present study. The data were collected through a pre-structured interview schedule and later appropriate statistical analysis was done to find out the meaningful result. The results showed that the farm women were engaged in almost all farm related activities. However, they were actively participating in sowing, transplanting, weeding, winnowing, drying, packaging etc. but they were having less participation in activities like field preparation, manure and fertilizer application, irrigation, threshing, transportation, etc. The association between some selected independent variables with participation of women in farm related activities was also found. Education, mass media exposure and extension contact were found to be significantly related to participation of rural women in pre harvest and post harvest activities.
