Abstract:

The study was conducted at Coimbatore, Erode and Tiruppur districts of Tamil Nadu. From each of districts three blocks were selected purposively and a sample of 20 certified organic farmers were selected from each of the blocks through purposive sampling. A total of 180certified organic farmers were surveyed for the study. From the study area half (50.55 %) of the certified organic farmers had high level of perception on eco-friendly conservation practices followed by low (26.11 %) and medium (23.34 %). More than half (53.33%) of the certified organic farmers had medium level of perception on use of organic manures followed by high (31.67 %) and low (15.00 %) levels of perception on use of organic manures. Majority (59.44 %) of the certified organic farmers had medium level of perception on profitability of organic farming, followed by high (23.89 %) and low (16.67 %) level of perception on profitability of organic farming. Majority of the certified organic farmers had medium level of perception on environmental degradation followed by high (29.45 %) and only 10.00 per cent of the certified organic farmers fell under low level category. Hence, the extension system needs to be strengthened so as to provide information on significance of organic farming.
