Abstract:

The research study was conducted on impact of training programme on knowledge, perception and attitude of stakeholders towards Bhoochetana programme. The Raichur, Koppal and Bellary districts were purposively selected based on their maximum area under groundnut cultivation. The random sampling procedure is being used to identify 180 beneficiaries. The ex-post –facto research design used for the study. It was observed that 45.56 per cent of the beneficiaries belonged to medium knowledge category followed by low (27.78 %) and high (26.67 %) categories. Majority of the beneficiaries had knowledge about varieties of groundnut suited for the region A large majority (91.11 %) of the beneficiaries had knowledge about recommended seed rate followed by seed treatment with Rhizobium & PSB. Majority (80.56 %) of the beneficiaries had knowledge regarding time of sowing. Whereas, 57.22 per cent of the beneficiaries had knowledge about recommended spacing. Large majority (92.78 %) of the beneficiaries know about application of recommended dose of macro and micronutrients (92.22 %). Majority (64.44 %) of the beneficiaries had knowledge about red headed hairy caterpillar management. Leaf minor management was known to 57.22 per cent of them. Majority (76.66 %) of the beneficiaries had knowledge regarding Tikka disease (leaf spot) management. Half (50.00 %) of the beneficiaries had knowledge regarding rust management. The correlation analyses that, education, farming experience, extension participation, extension contact, cosmopoliteness, risk orientation, economic motivation and management orientation showed positive and significant relationship at 0.01 level of probability. Whereas livestock possession showed negative and significant relationship at 0.05 level of probability.
