Rural youth are educated but not skilled unlike urban youth. Lack of new, challenging and better job opportunities in agriculture sector limits the job opportunities for educated rural youth. So there is a need to generate agripreneurship and new agricultural job opportunities to reduce migration of rural people and to promote rural upliftment. Thus the entrepreneurship in food processing and value addition of food can create boom in employment for rural areas. It is a better way to combat poverty and for rural development. Government has started so many vocational courses, training programs, schemes and programs for skill development of youth to promote rural entrepreneurship.
