Agricultural officers play a crucial role in supporting and advancing agricultural practices, which are essential for food security and sustaining economies. Understanding and enhancing job satisfaction among agricultural officers is vital, as it directly impacts their performance and overall success of agricultural endeavors. This study investigates the job satisfaction of agricultural officers in the southern zone of Andhra Pradesh consisting of a sample of 90 agricultural officers. The results indicated that more than one-third (37.78%) of the agricultural officers fall into the medium job satisfaction category. The study revealed dissatisfaction primarily related to working conditions, such as lack of proper facilities, electricity problems and community challenges. Among the sub-components, AO’s expressed higher satisfaction with co-workers and supervision but are least satisfied with working conditions. These findings provide insights into the factors influencing job satisfaction among agricultural officers and highlight areas that require attention and improvement in order to enhance their overall satisfaction and well-being.
