Abstract:

The present study was conducted among the eri rearers of Kachari tribe in the Jorhat district of Assam with a sample size of 120 respondents. Participation of women was found to be higher in eri culture activities. The study revealed that participation of women in nursery preparation (23.75%) and main field preparation (14.76%) was low against men. But, in rearing of eri silkworm and marketing (81.67%) and in post cocoon technology (93.33%) the participation of women was high against men. Ericulture has proved to be an excellent vocation for the development of tribal and rural women of Assam. For betterment of the eri rearers and for generating livelihood in eri culture, both skilled and unskilled tribal and small farmers should be encouraged by providing facilities and training.
