Abstract:

Women are involved both in production as well as in processing of paddy crops. The role of farm women in paddy cultivation practices is remarkable. Female labourers contributed significantly to the economic well-being of their families, hence, the level of income and welfare of a household will depend on the degree of their effective participation. Hence, the study is on ‘role of farm women in paddy cultivation practices’. The study was conducted in Orathanadu and Thiruvonam blocks of Orathanadu taluk in Thanjavur district with a sample of 120 farm women selected based on proportionate random sampling procedure. With regard to their role of farm women in paddy cultivation practices, high level of involvement was observed in were ‘weed management’, ‘nursery management’, ‘time of sowing’, ‘harvesting’, ‘selection of season’ and ‘irrigation management’. Low level of involvement was observed in ‘post-harvest operation’, ‘seed treatment’, ‘fertilizer management for main field’, ‘main field preparation’, ‘disease management’, ‘pest management’, ‘selection variety’ and ‘marketing’.
