The backwardness of the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe population is primarily attributed to their long isolation from the use of natural resources, their exploitation as well as material development. Agriculture is the main source of livelihood for these people. Several special programs have been initiated and implemented for the development of agriculture in the case of scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. In this context, the present paper is an attempt to examine the structural characteristics of the agriculture of scheduled castes and tribes and to bring out the relationship between socioeconomic and agro-geographic factors with the help of Common Factor Analysis.
