Abstract

The knowledge and adoption of mulberry sericulture technologies by the farmers was studied in Kolar district of Karnataka. The primary data were collected from the selected sample of 80 trained sericulturists with a structured schedule by using personal interview method before and after the training. The study suggests that the adoption of technology could be increased by motivation and conducting extension programmes such as Group discussion and Result demonstration. In addition study tours, refresher training programmes and confidence building steps would result in greater technology know how and adoption, this will have a positive spread effect in the study area.
