Abstract:

The present study was undertaken with the objective to study the awareness of farmers regarding Soil Health Card Scheme. The study was conducted in Jalandhar and Sangrur districts of Punjab. KVK Noormahal (Jalandhar) and KVK Kheri (Sangrur) were purposively selected for the study. Forty farmers from adjoining villages of KVK, Noormahal and 40 farmers from adjoining villages of KVK, Kheri who have not got SHC were randomly selected for the sample. An Interview schedule was prepared for the collection of data from the non-beneficiaries of SHCS. Awareness was measured by asking question regarding SHCS and seeking response in dichotomous form i.e. Yes/No and score of 2 and 1 respectively. Data were analyzed using appropriate statistical tools. Data indicated that all the non-beneficiaries were aware about soil testing and source of getting soil tested. Majority (97.5%) of the non-beneficiaries were aware about soil sampling technique followed by 76.25 per cent of the non-beneficiaries were aware about soil test based application of macro and micro nutrient under SHCS. About 73 per cent non-beneficiaries were aware about balanced application of chemical fertilizers under SHCS and as high as 70 per cent of the non-beneficiaries were aware about fertilizer use and management. Data also indicated that half of the non-beneficiaries belonged to medium category of awareness level. About 36 per cent of the non-beneficiaries belonged to low category of awareness level and only 16.25 per cent of the non-beneficiaries were in high category of awareness level.
