Agricultural Education Needs of out of School Youth Engaged in Farming

The Government of India, recognising the need for agricultural production commensurate with the rate of growth of population in the country, have made some effort to train young farmers; but the programme needs to be extended to provide for the needs and interests of the drop-outs or ‘out of school youth’ farmers. This study was designed to determine the personal characteristics of these young farmers, identify their needs and interests, and their attitudes to the agricultural education programme in operation. The enquiry showed a positive interest among the young farmers in improving and increasing their output by learning new techniques, by self education, and an educational programme through village level worker.
