Abstract:

This study was undertaken in Lakhimpur district of Assam in the year 2017 with a view to ascertain the entrepreneurial behaviour of rural youth engaged in vegetable cultivation. The production of vegetables all around the year enables the growers to fully utilize their resources and supplement income from vegetable growing as compared to other normal agricultural crops. They provide an important source of income for the small and marginal farmers of our country as well as upcoming rural youths. Effective extension intervention may aid the process of intensification for full scale commercialization of production of vegetable enterprises and promoting entrepreneurship and self-employment. For the study, 60 respondents were selected by purposive and random sampling technique. Data was collected by administering a structured schedule. Statistical tools employed to analyze the data included frequency distribution, percentage, mean, standard deviation. The study revealed that more than half of the rural youth engaged in vegetable cultivation (61.67%) had medium level of entrepreneurial behaviour in the district.
