Abstract:

The present study was conducted during the year 2017-18 in Mandya district of Karnataka state, India. Two villages each in Head reach and Tail end areas of Krishna Raja Sagar dam were randomly selected. In each selected village 25 paddy growers were personally interviewed by using pre-tested interview schedule. Thus, 100 farmers constituted the sample size. The data collected was analyzed using percentages and ‘t’ test. The results of the study reveals that, Majority of the Head reach farmers have low-medium, whereas Majority of the Tail end farmers has medium-high knowledge and adoption. Among the constrains faced by Head reach farmers, lack of sufficient knowledge and guidance on the Climate Resilient Agricultural Technologies ranked first. On the other hand untimely release and improper scheduling of water in the canals ranked first among the problems faced by Tail end farmers.
