Abstract:

Indian agriculture is characterized by the ownerships of small land holdings. The small holdings are used for mainly production of food crops. The small farmers inadequately use fertilizers and without or meager irrigation can produce only one crop in a year, which is turn make the farmers economic condition not only pathetic also lead to inability to purchase input required for farming, like fertilizers, good quality seeds etc. Due to the non-availability of a proper test to measure the knowledge of dairy farmers towards Clean Milk Production practices, it was thought necessary to construct a test for the purpose. The main focus of the investigation was to study the status of clean milk production vis-à-vis knowledge level of dairy farmers regarding clean milk production. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to develop a test for measuring the knowledge of dairy farmers towards Clean Milk Production practices. Pertinent items were collected covering all aspects of Clean Milk Production practices. After getting jury opinion on the items of test index of item difficulty, index of item discrimination and index of item validity were worked out. To administer the knowledge test a respondent is given one mark for each correct answer and zero mark for each wrong answer. Twenty one items were finally selected from 35 items for the knowledge test of dairy farmers.
