Abstract:

Krishi Vigyan Kendras or Farm Science Centres have been established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research in all districts of Tamil Nadu. The trust areas of KVKs are refinement and demonstration of technologies, and training of farmers, farm women, rural youth and extension functionaries. Imparting trainings in agriculture and allied fields for the rural youth is one of its mandates. Effective training is considered as an important factor in determining the efficiency of an organization which depends upon the capability of its trainees. For training evaluation to be truly effective, the training and development itself must be appropriate for the person and the situation. Even though evaluation is listed at the last phase, evaluation actually happens during all the phases. It is used during the training process to evaluate the training process itself. Value addition in agriculture predominantly offers a means to increase, rejuvenate and stabilize farm income. The results exemplified the effectiveness of tomato value addition training in terms of content of the training programme, time allotted for the course, quality of the material provided, instructors knowledge about the subject, illustration by practical examples, mode of presentation, communication skills, and interaction of the trainer with the trainee. Moreover, the findings of the study conclude education level, innovativeness and attitude towards value addition are contributing factors for improving the positive impact of training.
