Abstract

Background: Lack of correct and inadequate knowledge leads to under or over adoption of innovation which proves fatal to the farming business. Therefore, Krishi Vigyan Kendra imparted training and demonstration programmes at Tribal area of Amravati district under TSP. Hence a study was conducted to ascertain the level of knowledge and adoption of farmers with respect to Bengal gram production technologies due to training imparted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Ghatkhed, Amravati.
Methods: The study was carried out in three villages in tribal area of Dharni block of Amravati district, where most of the farmers were growing Bengal gram crop. To measure the impact of the training programme, the farmers were grouped as ‘trainees’ and ‘non-trainees’ and a random sample of 25 farmers from each group were drawn from KVK adopted villages of tribal area for testing their level of knowledge and extent of adoption by means of a well structured schedule.
Result: The trainees farmers had high level of knowledge and adoption than the non-trainees farmers. It was also found that calculated value of ‘t’ was significant at 1 per cent level of significance. It means that there is significant difference between trainees and non-trainees regarding the extent of adoption of package of practices of Bengal gram crop.
