A Scale to Measure Farmer’s Attitude Towards Improved Agricultural Practices

Due to the non-availability of a proper scale to measure farmer’s attitude towards improved agricultural
practices in Uttaranchal hills, it was thought necessary to construct a scale for the purpose. Keeping this in

statements for which scale (S) and Q values were worked out. The scale values of the statements on the
psychological continuum were relatively equally spaced.
