Abstract:

Youth are the most potent segment of the population of a country. The youth of today are the hopes of tomorrow. They are the real spirit for future agriculture of the country. Forces that shape and influence youth today will be the forces that dominate our country tomorrow. Youth look not only for a livelihood, but for dignity and for purpose and meaning in their lives. Youth make up approximately one-fifth of the total population in many countries in developing and emerging economy regions. The socio-economic development and prosperity of rural areas depends, to a considerable extent, on the type of youth living in rural areas, because the rural youth have abilities to orient themselves to go along the main stream of the development process. It is a known fact that hardly few youth are practising agriculture, even though, majority of the rural youth have vigour and zeal to excel in agricultural and allied activities. In this context, it is worthwhile to know the extent of participation of youth in agriculture and allied activities. Keeping this in view, a study was conducted in Warangal district of Telangana state with a total sample of 120 youth who are selected using simple random sampling technique. The objective of the study was to know the extent of participation of youth in agriculture and allied activities. The data was collected from primary sources with structured interview schedule. The study employed descriptive statistics and rank order method to analyse the data. The study indicated that more than half (51.7%) of the total youth had medium level of participation in agriculture and allied activities followed by low (25.0%) and high (23.3%). Among male youth majority (53.4%) had medium level of participation in overall agriculture and allied activities followed by high (28.2%) and low (18.4%). Among female youth exactly half (50.0%) of youth had medium level of participation in overall agriculture and allied activities followed by low (31.6%) and high (18.4%).
