Abstract:

In order to feed the country’s population in general and our state in particular, farming is a must and we shouldn’t leave any stone unturned to minimise the migrations from rural to urban and make agriculture so attractive for urbanites to move in the reverse direction. The present study was carried out from July 2016 to March 2017 with a perceptual and comparative analysis among the extension functionaries of coastal district (Jagatsinghpur) and tribal district (Mayurbhanj) of Odisha state with the total sample of 32 extension functionaries out of which 16 each from tribal and coastal institutions selected through random sampling in an intention to find out the importance of institutions to address intergenerational occupational mobility in farming sector. An attempt was made to find out the responses of the extension agents from the line departments, KVKs, NGOs and other organisations working for the development of farming sector at grass root level as well as assisting in policy making on the intergenerational occupational mobility in farming sector and major reasons behind this occupational mobility across the generation. The study found major requirements of timely input availability (mean=4.44) followed by participatory planning (mean=4.38) in tribal and insurance on all major crops(mean=4.50) followed by participatory planning (mean=3.94)might help to provide better income from farming and could orient the next generation to be involved in farming. The result showed higher family pressure in coastal than the tribal district which made the new generation less aspirants for farming as their occupation.
