Akhilesh Kumar Dubey and J. P. Srivastava

Abstract

A study was conducted to ascertain the level of knowledge and adoption behavior of the farmers with respect to wheat production technologies due to training imparted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Allahabad. Farmers were selected from the four villages namely Hathigon from Chaka block, Tikarikala, Pander and Sujauna from Jasara block and imparted training on scientific wheat production technologies. Twenty-five trainees and equal number of non-trainees were randomly selected making the sample size of 50 farmers. It was found that trainees had high level of knowledge (100 %) whereas in case of non-trainees, 52% high level, 44 % medium level and only 4 % with low level of knowledge. There was a significant difference between trainees and nontrainees regarding the knowledge about the package of practices of wheat crop. The study also revealed that most of the trainees (84 %) had higher level of adoption followed by medium level (16 %) whereas, most of the non-trainees had medium level of adoption (64 %) followed by low level of adoption (32 %). This indicates that there had been a significant difference between trainees and non-trainees regarding the extent of adoption of package of practices of wheat crop. Trainees had higher level of adoption of recommended package of practices as also higher mean scores than the non- trainees. Thus, it could be concluded that the trainees had more knowledge and extent of adoption of package of practices of wheat crop than non-trainees. The KVK should organize more number of training programmes for maximum benefit of the farmers
