Abstract:

Attitude refers to the degree of positive or negative affect associated with some psychological object. The present study was conducted to develop an attitude scale for measuring the attitude of farmers towards sustainable cultivation practices of Pineapple. Likert’s summative rating technique of scale construction was used. The procedure of developing included item collection, editing of items, item analysis and calculating scale values of each of the scale items. The final scale consisted of 14 statements including 6 positive and 8 negative statements. The scale so developed was subjected to the reliability and validity tests. Reliability of the scale was calculated by using split half method and reliability coefficient was 0.85. The results of reliability and validity of the scale indicated that the scale can be used to measure the attitude of farmers towards adoption of sustainable cultivation practices of Pineapple.
