Abstract

Agriculture is the prime engine of growth and backbone of developing nations. In India, a developing economy, nearly 60% of the working population find agriculture as their main source of income/livelihood. Women play multiple roles in agriculture and allied activities such as food production, horticulture, harvesting operations, fisheries, etc. It is also estimated that in India about 75% of women are working as agricultural labour force and are active agents of the primary sector. The present study focuses on the nature and extent of female participation in Indian agriculture using secondary data on the period 1993-2012.
