Agricultural development is an important component of inclusive sustainable growth approach. However, the agrarian sector has been plagued with many issues resulting in deagrarianisation i.e, the farmers opting to come out of the sector provided a chance is given. The study was undertaken to assess the risk and vulnerability of the farmers in two districts in Telangana State and the coping mechanisms followed by them. The production, occupation and financial vulnerability of the farmers was assessed and observed that both the small and marginal farmers (SMF) category and large and medium farmers (LMF) in rainfed district and even the SMF category of irrigated district were subjected to all the three types of vulnerability mentioned above. The two major coping mechanisms being followed by them were land leasing and dependency on livestock. Institutional support systems need to be provided to these two, to promote them further.
