Abstract:

Agriculture is the mainstay of Indian economy because about 56 per cent of our population depends directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihood. Agriculture and allied sector contributes approximately 13.9% of India’s GDP but still Indian agriculture is facing many challenges, which hinder the potential of agricultural production. In these challenges natural calamities like hail, drought, floods, cyclone and typhoon are very severe because they are out of control for human being, but we can mitigate the loss from these calamities with the help of crop insurance. The present study was conducted in Jaipur district of Rajasthan as this district had highest number of registered farmers under Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) as compared to other districts of the state. Findings of the study revealed that majority of the beneficiary (67.78%), non-beneficiary (62.22%) and overall respondents (65.00%) had medium level of knowledge about PMFBY. There was significant association between education, annual income, mass media exposure and extension agency contact with the knowledge level of the respondents.
