There are people who can take hold on both the types of attitude positive as well as negative which simply leads to the controversy if a person can hold multiple attitudes towards something. Organic farming is gaining popularity all over the world, as it can diversify agricultural production systems towards attaining improved productivity, farm income and food, as well as environmental safety. Hence, the present study analyzes the attitude of organic and inorganic paddy growers towards organic paddy cultivation in TBP Command Area by developing a scale to measure the same. The study was contemplated to develop and standardize the same. The method of equal appearing intervals was used to develop the attitude scale, which comprises of 32 statements (positive and negative). Split half method was followed for testing reliability of the scale and reliability co-efficient of the scale was 0.715. Hence, the scale is reliable and can produce consistent results. The scale was developed finally consists of 21 statements including 16 positive and 05 negative statements.
