Abstract:

The research study was conducted on impact of training programme on knowledge, perception and attitude of stakeholders towards Bhoochetana programme. The Raichur, Koppal and Bellary districts were purposively selected based on their maximum area under cotton cultivation. The random sampling procedure is being used to identify 180 beneficiaries. The ex-post-facto research design is used in this study. It was revealed that cent per cent of the respondents had knowledge about the improved hybrids which were suited to their region. Majority (93.89 %) of the respondents had knowledge about sowing time followed by sowing method (92.78 %), recommended spacing (91.66 %), suitable soil (91.66 %), recommended seed rate (87.22%) and duration of the crop (76.61%) for cultivation of Bt cotton. Majority (81.66 %) of the respondents had knowledge about insect of leaf hopper followed by thrips (63.89 %) and mirid bugs (62.22 %). In case of management of diseases, majority of (65.55 %) the respondents know the management of leaf spot. The correlation analysis corroborated that the education, farming experience had positive and significant relationship of with the knowledge level of recommended practices in Bt cotton crop. Achievement motivation & management orientation was positively and significantly correlated with the knowledge of recommended practices in Bt cotton at 0.01% level of significance.
