Abstract:

The present research study was conducted during 2019-2020. In this study attitude of rural youth towards agri-enterprises was studied. Due to non-availability of appropriate scale to measure attitude of rural youth towards agri-enterprises, it was thought necessary to construct a scale for the purpose. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to develop a scale for measuring the attitude of rural youth towards agri-enterprises. Method of summated rating scale, by Likert (1932) was used. Thirty six statements were selected from fifty four statements for which ‘t’ values were worked out. Statements both positive and negative with t-values more than 1.75 for were selected. Statement wise content analysis of attitude of rural youth towards agri-enterprises was conducted. “I prefer to work with strong desire to achieve excellence in running the agri enterprise” with highest mean score (4.71) ranked first followed by “I prefer to be self-confident while taking decisions in running the agri-enterprise”. In the same way remaining 34 statements were keenly analyzed and presented in the paper.
