Abstract:

A study was conducted in Raichur district of Karnataka to know the level of entrepreneurial behaviour of pigeon pea seed growers. A sample of 40 respondents was selected for present study by using purposive sampling technique. The five components of entrepreneurial behaviour were undertaken to evaluate the status of entrepreneurial behaviour such as, innovativeness, decision-making ability, achievement motivation, leadership ability and Cosmo politeness. The results revealed that majority (45.00 %) of the growers belonged to high entrepreneurial behavior category. Whereas, 32.50 and 22.50 per cent of the growers were in medium and low entrepreneurial behaviour category, respectively. The variables like farming experience, annual income, mass media participation and extension participation were showed significant relationship with entrepreneurial behaviour at 5 per cent level of probability. Whereas, risk orientation and management orientation showed significant relationship with entrepreneurial behaviour at 1 per cent level of probability. The R2 (0.658) value indicated that, the twelve independent variables put together, contributed a significant amount of variation (65.80%) in the overall entrepreneurial behavior of pigeonpea seed growers.
