Abstract


The present study was conducted in one districts namely, Nasik of Maharashtra State with sample size of 200 grape
growers to measure their management efficiency. Ten components of management efficiency of grape growers
namely, knowledge regarding management practices, information seeking ability, ability in planning, ability in coordinating
activities, timely adoption, ability to make rational decisions, ability to mobilize resources, efficient use
of resources, ability in rational marketing and competence in evaluation were selected based on relevancy weightage
and scale value. The standard procedure was followed to develop the scale such as item/statement collection,
criteria given by Edward (1969) to frame the statements, judges’ response on items, item analysis, validity and
reliability. It was observed that the scale values of components of management efficiency of grape growers i.e.
knowledge regarding management practices, information seeking ability, ability in planning, ability in co-ordinating
activities, timely adoption, ability to make rational decisions, ability to mobilize resources, efficient use of resources,
ability in rational marketing and competence in evaluation were 8.73, 7.22, 6.14, 4.77, 4.44, 4.11, 3.97, 3.36, 2.70
and 2.27 respectively. It reveals that all the statements under components of management efficiency of grape
growers were found to have highly significant. And also all the statements had relevancy weightage more than 0.75.
Hence, the management efficiency scale was found to be standardized.
