Abstract:

The research study was conducted in northeastern region of Karnataka (NEK) to assess the perception of the stake holders of e-SAP dissemination tool. The ex-post-facto research design was used for the study with 384 stakeholders. e-SAP is an important ICT flat form, which facilitates the access of relevant, technical feasible, economically affordable with socially acceptable information to the decision making system of various stakeholders in agriculture field. e-SAP refers to electronic solutions against agriculture pest. It enables the rapid & effective dissemination of need based and fruitful technologies to farm lands and delivery of farm data in various farms to different stake holders like Farmers, Extension officers, Researchers, Policy makers and other users. This technology is successfully designed, tested & adopted by University of Agricultural Sciences Raichur in association with Tene Agriculture solutions private limited, Bangalore. e-SAP plays pivotal role in minimization of crop losses due to incidence of pest. About half of the (45.95%) the field facilitator belongs to high perception category, whereas nearly equal percentage of the farmers were shared and identified in medium to high category (36.98 % and 32.55 %). The statement-wise perception analysis is skewed towards higher side for both field facilitator and farmers. The correlation analyses revealed that, age and education of the farmers had shown negative and significant relationship with their perception towards e-sap at 1% level of probability in management of pest. It seems age old farmers and long experienced farmers had negative perception towards e-sap. Education, Risk orientation and Information management had shown positive and significant relationship with their perception towards e-SAP at 1% level of probability, whereas Management orientation has shown positive and significant relationship with their perception towards e-SAP at 5% level of probability.
