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.
