Abstract:

The present study was conducted in 12 Raitha Samparka Kendras (RSKs) of Tumukuru district of Karnataka state during 2017-2018 to know the extent of participation of farmers in agricultural extension activities of RSKs. One hundred twenty farmers who availed agricultural extension services of RSKs were interviewed using a pre-tested interview schedule. The results revealed that a vast majority of farmers had ‘contacted’ the agricultural extension functionaries in RSKs through mobile (85.00%) and landline phone (81.66%). A majority of farmers had ‘participated’ in the agricultural extension activities such as meetings/discussion (73.33%), training programmes (68.33%), field visits (59.16%), method demonstration (52.50%) and result demonstration (50.83%) organized by RSKs. Majority of the farmers (68.34%) were having to medium to high level of participation in the agricultural extension activities of RSKs. Education, achievement motivation, management orientation, scientific orientation, mass media participation and extension agency contact of farmers had significant to highly significant relationship with their participation in agricultural extension activities.
