India is a developing country in all sectors, it is the same in agriculture sector too. Most of rural
youth in the country is not interested to do agriculture. Rural youth are the prospect of future
agricultural sector. By way of a growing world inhabitants and a reducing agricultural yield in
combination with a rural migration, supportable food production and supply are vulnerable.
Young farmers play a vital role in safeguarding food security for forthcoming generations but
they face many challenges. The objective of the study is to 'understand the perception of youth
belonging to agriculture family of Pichanur village of Coimbatore District towards agriculture'.
Purposive sampling method was adopted to collect primary data from 37 families. From the
study, it is found that majority of the youth belonging to agriculture family is not interested in
continuing agriculture so it is important that the government should take necessary steps to
increase the hope and confidence level in the field of agriculture among youth.
