From this district among the 120 respondents majority (61.67 %) of the respondents of Bi-voltine silkworm rearing farmers belong to high adoption category. Whereas, 22.50 and 15.83 per cent of the respondents belong to medium and low adoption categories respectively. The relationship between Education, Mass media participation, Extension agency contact, and Extension participation were found to have significant relationship at one per cent level of significance.
