Abstract:

Return migration is the gauge for changing socio-economic and political conditions in rural areas. Return migrated rural youths have involved themselves in agripreneurship development in rural areas. Here, the attitude of youths towards agripreneurship plays a critical role hence the study was taken with 180 return migrated rural youths in three selected states of southern India. The salient findings were the majority of the respondents (52.23%) possessed a moderately favourable attitude. The factors influencing the attitude of youths were land-holding, herd-size and risk-orientation had a positive and significant relationship at one percent level of probability. The extent of contribution of independent variables with the dependent variable was worked out while using multiple regression analysis, the R2 value was 0.646, which revealed that 64.60 percent variation in the attitude of return migrated rural youth towards agripreneurship development was explained by ten independent variables selected for the study. I have more opportunities to work as per my own decisions was a top-ranked statement (with 90.50 weighed mean score percentage). Whereas low social recognition is one of the important issues which hinders the youth’s involvement in agripreneurship. Hence Promotion and recognition of progressive return migrated rural youths in agripreneurship would motivate them to involve more dynamically in agripreneurship development. This can ignite the return migration process and promote agripreneurship among such rural youths.
