Abstract:
The imperative for profile analysis emerges as a guiding compass through the intricate pathways of farmers' lives, transcending statistical realms. Just as wise farmers select seeds for bountiful harvests, understanding farmers' profiles aligns with choosing lenses to perceive their reality. Analyzing personnel, socio-economic, and psychological variables become vital to comprehend agricultural ground reality. A meticulous interview schedule collected primary data from 180 farmers via purposive random sampling across Telangana's distinct Agro-climatic zones. Findings reveal that predominant middle-aged farmers (55.00%), medium family education (38.89%), and concrete house ownership (64.44%). Material passion was mainly medium (62.78%), and farming experience varied. Socio-political participation (45.00%), lower personnel achievements (63.33%), and diverse landholding sizes. Annual income skewed towards low levels (50.56%). Medium levels of innovativeness (43.89%), self-confidence (57.22%), and high levels of economic motivation (42.22%) was observed. The majority held medium risk orientation (57.78%). The results uncover age's diverse impacts on variables, including negative relationships with innovation, self-confidence, and positive ones with farming experience. Innovativeness exhibited positive links with achievement motivation, self-confidence, economic motivation, and risk orientation. Achievement motivation positively related to self-confidence, economic motivation, and risk orientation. Self-confidence had positive relations with economic motivation and risk orientation. Economic motivation positively correlated with risk orientation.
