Abstract:

This study was conducted in Adilabad, Khammam and Warangal districts of Telangana. Ex post-facto research design was followed in this study, since different variables chosen for the study had already occurred. An effort was made to document the indigenous technology of tribal farmers. For testing the rationality of the ITKs, a questionnaire containing lists of ITKs was prepared and exposed to the scientists for judging their rationality and validity on a three point scale wherein, 3 is rational, 2 undecided and 1 is irrational. The mean score was calculated by summing the scores overall and divided by the number of judges for a given item and if it is more than two then the item was considered as rational and less than two was considered as irrational. For validity, the scientists were asked to find out the valid ITKs among rational ITKs which were validated, tested and verified on the basis of research. Out of 63 ITKs in general 41 ITKs (65.08%) were judged rational by the scientists and 22 ITKs (34.92%) were judged as not rational. Out of 41 rational ITKs of general agriculture, 36 ITKs were found valid by the scientists as the test verification was already completed for those ITKs like ploughing, levelling, pre-sowing season for land preparation and incorporation of FYM in the soil for improving soil fertility were judged as rational as well as valid by the scientists.
