In addition, women also played a pivotal role in agriculture and livestock management. In modern agriculture too, women continued to share a number of farm operations with men.

The results proved that majority (60.00 per cent) of the respondents played medium role in farm decision making while 20.83 per cent and 19.17 per cent of the respondents played low and high role in farm decision making, respectively.
