AbstractAs a part of larger research project a field survey was conducted in the Janagaon region of Warangal District, Andhra Pradesh. A qualitative part focussing on the labour use in value chain of rice marketing is carried out in the study area. In order to understand the labour use in value chain, it is limited to a part of whole sale marketing. In other words it covered labour use in Agriculture Grain Market Yards, Food Corporation of India’s (FCI) rice Godowns and Rice Mills. The qualitative part of the study is based on the focus group discussion (FGDs) among labourers engaged in rice production and value chain, informal discussion with the management of FCI and Rice Mill Owners and Technical Staff. It is to capture the changes in labour use and the impact of technology on it in the rice production cycle and value chain. Particularly, changes in the nature of employment, conditions of work, wages and employment relations with respect to rice cultivation.
