Abstract:

A study was conducted to assess impact of KVK interventions in adopted villages of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kalikiri. The objective of the study was to ascertain knowledge and adoption level of specific crop technologies assessed/demonstrated through various interventions during 2016-17 to 2018-19 by KVK. Adopted cluster villages Addavaripalli, Mittapalli and Balamvaripalli were taken for study and 20 beneficiary farmers were selected randomly from each cluster. The data were collected through personal interview schedule. The data revealed that cent per cent knowledge was observed on use of drought resistant varieties of groundnut followed by summer ploughing and sub soil chiseling was 91.6 and 90 per cent respectively. Similarly adoption of improved varieties of groundnut, summer ploughing and seed treatment was adopted by 100, 83.3 and 60 per cent farmers respectively. This could be due to effectiveness of technologies at field level and increase in yield. In case of tomato production technologies, knowledge and adoption was high in relation to installation of pheromone traps and preventive spray of neem oil to reduce incidence of Tuta absoluta. Knowledge and adoption of mango fruit fly management is also found to be high with interventions of KVK like FLDs, OFTs and training programs. Non availability of critical inputs to adopt technologies and lack of confidence on some technologies were found to be constraints in adoption of critical technologies.
