A total of 200 respondents were selected by using multistage purposive cum random sampling technique. The data were collected by means of personal interview schedule during 25th Feb, 2016 - 3rd April, 2016. The findings revealed that age (0.589), size of operational land holding (0.172), annual income of the family (0.092), training exposure (0.483) and mass media exposure (0.435) of the respondents is positively significant and highly correlated with extent of participation in management activities. However, occupation of parents (= 30. 254*) had significant association at 5 per cent probability level with extent of participation in management activities. The regression coefficient of age, age (b = 0.534), sources of farm machineries and farm implements (b = -0.343) and attitude towards farming (b = 1.074) were found to be significant. The co-efficient of multiple determinations (R2=0.624) explain together 62.40 per cent to the total variation on the extent of participation in management activities.
