Data was analyzed by SPSSWin20 software. Findings revealed that agriculture enterprises at Bhagalpur district in Bihar state have the entrepreneurial socioeconomics and psychological profile. India in general and Bihar in particular, is struggling to promote agri-entrepreneurships. Agri industries or agri-business continue to be traditional, old fashioned and still appears to be far away from the innovative ways with which the youth in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat or Maharashtra are used to raise their agri business and agri-export. Why Bihar is lacking behind in agri-entrepreneurship and what should be done to shed the bar and embark on the path of success on this front? In order to answer these haunting questions in the mind of Agricultural scientists, the administrators and the policy makers, this investigation has been planned.
