Author(s):

Abstract:
The majority of women youth in India still reside in rural areas where agriculture still serves as the primary and inherited means of subsistence. Their ability to contribute to agriculture at their full potential has been overlooked. This sector faces additional barriers by virtue of gender, location and age related barriers. In this regard, present investigation was undertaken in four districts of Chhattisgarh state during 2022-23. Rural women having agriculture as their family occupation and aged between 15 to 29 years were considered and their attitude and aspiration has been studied. It has been found that most of the respondents (49.17%) had somewhat favourable attitude towards agriculture as an occupation. Most of women rural youth (72.92%) had low level of aspiration towards agriculture and allied dimensions.
