Mr. Prashant D Sanjeevagol, Dr. Anji A


India has a national tradition bound to agriculture fertility. Based on 2011 World Bank data, only 17.5% of India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is accounted for by agricultural production. Yet for a majority of the country, an estimated 72% of the 1.1 billion people who live in rural India, it is a way of life. Agriculture in India defines familial tradition, social relations and gender roles. Female in the agricultural sector, whether through traditional means or industrial, for subsistence or as an agricultural laborer, represents a momentous demographic group. Agriculture is directly tied to issues such as economic independence, decision making abilities, agency and access to education and health services and this manner has created externalities such as poverty and marginalization, and compounded issues of gender inequality. This study attempt to study on socio-economic condition on Nigadi and Deverhubbli village in Dharwad district, to analyze the problem of agriculture women labour and to study on initiative programs of Government and Non Government Organization (NGO’s) for agriculture labour womens. Total data collection were primary and secondary sources. For the primary data was collected from 50 respondents in different age groups and communities from the study areas.
