The farmers’ well-being is a dynamic process that gives people a sense of how their lives are evolving.  More precisely, it refers to the welfare of farmers which is influenced by both qualitative and quantitative parameters. Well-being may differ from individual to individual due to differences in their socio-economic characteristics. An attempt is made to construct a scale to measure well-being of farmers. The ‘r’ value of the scale was found 0.7129, which was significant at one per cent level indicating the high reliability and data were subjected for statistical validity, which was found to be 0.9313 for scale, this value is greater than the standard requirement of 0.70. Hence, the scale developed was found to reliable and valid. The well-being scale developed was administered to 30 farmers of Malur taluk in Kolar district of Karnataka state during 2017-2018. The results revealed that 70.33 per cent of farmers had medium to high level of well-being status and 26.67 per cent of farmers had low level of well-being status.
