Abstract:

While the country has made large strides in achieving the agricultural development goals of food security, availability and accessibility, it is still being challenged by many social, economic and environment factors such as increase in population, declining land resources, increasing urbanisation, increasing demand of food due to rising income and transition of youth from farming to non-farming sector. With the intergenerational occupational mobility in farming sector, the present study was carried out from July 2016 to March 2017 with a perceptual and comparative analysis among the respondents of coastal district (Jagatsinghpur) and tribal district (Mayurbhanj) of Odisha state of India with the total sample of 240 respondents out of which 120 each from tribal and coastal selected through proportionate random sampling in an intention to find out the structural and technological change in accordance with intergenerational occupational mobility in farming sector in tribal and coastal districts of Odisha. The result found that the present generation witnessed decrease in average land holding of 0.08 ha in tribal district and 0.11 ha in coastal district with respect to previous generation. Most of the tribal farmers (47.50%) remained in lower level of change in extension participation whereas most of the coastal farmers (39.17%) remained in the medium level of change in extension participation. Majority of tribal farmers (40.83%) remained at lower level while majority of coastal farmers (42.50%) placed in medium level of change in accessing modern technologies like line sowing, INM, HYVs, Hybrids, IFS, drip irrigation etc.
