Scientific orientation of tribal farm women and its relationship with their contribution in agriculture and animal husbandry

Agricultural production plays a significant role in the Indian economy. In India, women and agriculture seem synonymous terms. One can not think of agriculture without women. There is hardly any activity in agriculture except ploughing, where women are not involved. The tribal farmwoman shares with her husband the arduous burden of farm work in addition to her major responsibility as home maker, by helping in all other agricultural and animal husbandry activities. Keeping this fact in mind, the present study was carried out to find out scientific orientation of tribal farm women and its relationship with their contribution in agriculture and animal husbandry. The result of the study revealed that nearly three fourth (74.50 per cent) of the tribal farmwomen had medium level of scientific orientation, followed by 14.00 per cent high and 11.50 per cent low level of scientific orientation. It is also observed that there is a positive and highly significant relationship between the scientific orientation and overall extent of contribution in agricultural operations whereas there is non-significant relationship between the scientific orientation and overall extent of contribution of tribal farmwomen in animal husbandry activities.
