out satisfaction level after using the information sources in four villages of Kaithal and Jind
districts of Haryana state which were selected purposively as wheat crop grown in area at large
scale. A proportionate random sample of 165 farm women who were actively involved in farming
was selected purposively. The data were collected with the help of structured interview schedule.
The collected data were processed, tabulated and analyzed by using frequency, percentage, mean
weight score, rank, etc. Results revealed that neighbours, family members and friends were found
very useful and fully satisfied as localite sources of information . None of the cosmopolite sources
were perceived as very useful or useful. But radio, television and cassette recorder were found
