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 beneficeries. The ex-post –facto research design is used for the study. It was observed that 38.89 per cent of beneficiaries belonged to medium adoption category, followed by low (27.22 %) and high (33.89 %) adoption categories. Majority (83.33 %) of the beneficiaries adopted Mallika followed by Bunny (54.44 %), Vikram (52.78 %) and Dr-Brent (47.27 %). Majority (80.00 %) of the beneficiaries had sown the crop as per the recommended time, while only 20.00 per cent of beneficiaries had delayed the sowing of the crop. Cent per cent of the beneficiaries followed the manual dibbling method of sowing. Majority (77.22 %) of the beneficiaries fully adopted the seed rate as per the recommendation. In addition, Majority (71.11 %) of the beneficiaries fully adopted the recommended spacing followed by partial adoption (28.89 %). The quantity of chemical fertilizer applied, 56.11 per cent of beneficiaries partially applied recommended phosphorous followed by nitrogen (51.17 %) and potash (51.11 %). In case of intercropping, majority (69.44 %) of the beneficiaries partially adopted the practice followed by full adoption (30.56 %). Over forty (40.55 %) per cent of the beneficiaries partially adopted the management practices for flower drop followed by no adoption (37.78 %) and full adoption. In addition Over two fifth (45.56 %) of the beneficiaries partially adopted the recommended management practices for sucking pests like leaf hopper, thrips and mirid bugs followed by full (32.33 %) and no adoption (22.22 %). Education, farming experience, land holding, extension contact, risk orientation and management orientation had positive and significant relationship with the adoption of recommended practices in Bt cotton crop.
