Abstract:

The present study describes the Socio-economic Status of Tribal Farmers of Tinsukia district of Assam. The study area was Kakopather and Margherita Blocks of the district. The information was collected on the basis of personal interview to each of the farmer through a questionnaire. A total sample of 800 farmers was selected randomly from thirty different villages of two blocks during 2015-16 and 2016-17. The study revealed that they are very poor farmers with low literacy and knowledge about agricultural methods and they grow only rice, tea and oranges and without any awareness about their improved management practices. By introducing facilities of modern technology, their socioeconomic standard can be increased.
