Abstract:

Tribal agriculture in India demands youth skilled in scientific farming. Tribal youth are active stake holders in agripreneurship design and can transform tribal communities on a sustainable basis. Lack of desired skills among tribal youth makes them vulnerable when compared to their rural and urban counterparts. Making them employable in various agricultural enterprises is a major challenge in front of the government as tribal youth face a plethora of problems which hinder their active participation. The present study attempted to analyse various personal, social, technological, economic and other miscellaneous constraints faced by tribal youth in undertaking various agricultural enterprises. A descriptive and analytical research design was used to meet the objectives of the study. The study was carried out in Koraput district of Odisha which was selected purposively. Three blocks were selected randomly and 12 villages were selected purposively. The study was carried out on a sample of 246 tribal youth who were selected through proportional allocation from the selected villages and were interviewed using a pre-tested structured schedule. Lack of role model, lack of faith from old family members, lack of information about improved agricultural technologies, lack of profits and lack of extension activities were the major constraints faced by the tribal youth in various agricultural enterprises.
