Agricultural production plays a significant role in the Indian economy. In India, women and agriculture seem synonymous terms. One can not think of agriculture without women. There is hardly any activity in agriculture except ploughing, where women are not involved. The tribal farmwoman shares with her husband the arduous burden of farm work in addition to her major responsibility as home maker, by helping in all other agricultural and animal husbandry activities. Keeping this fact in mind, the present study was carried out to find out Social participation of tribal farm women and its relationship with their contribution in agriculture and animal husbandry. The result of the study revealed that Majority (85.00 per cent) of the tribal farmwomen have not taken part in any social organisation while 14.50 per cent respondents had membership in one organisation. It is also observed that there was highly significant relationship between social participation and overall contribution of tribal farmwomen in agricultural operations whereas there was highly significant relationship between social participation of tribal farmwomen and their overall extent of contribution in animal husbandry activities.
