Abstract:

Agricultural Technology and Information Centre (ATIC) is a “single window” delivery system linking the various units of the institutions with farmers in decision making and problem solving exercises. An attempt was made to assess the services of ATIC availed by farmers and extent of utilization of these services. A total of 200 farmers were selected from the Ludhiana and Fazilka districts of Punjab as maximum number of farmers had visited ATIC from these districts. The findings revealed that majority of the farmers (58.50%) took advice both on cultivation of crops and disease infestation from ATIC. Package of practices of rabi and kharif crops were availed by 60.50 per cent of farmers and majority of them were subscribers of monthly magazine Changi Kheti. About 60.00 per cent of the farmers used PAU helpline and out of these farmers, majority enquired about plant protection measures, improved varieties and seed availability. About technological products, majority of the farmers purchased seeds of wheat and paddy. It was observed that 42.00 per cent of the farmers had medium level, 32.00 per cent were in low level and 25.50 per cent had high level of extent of utilization.
