Abstract:

Analytical and Descriptive research design was used for study purposively selected districts of Uttarakhand. Total 200 farmers selected by using probability proportionate to size method. Age, sex, education, family composition, land holding, farming experience, occupation, social participation, socio economic status, extension agency contact, mass media utilization, information seeking behavior, personal localiteness, personal cosmopoliteness, scientific orientation, innovativeness and economic motivation were independent variable. Adoption of climate resilient practices was the dependent variable. The findings revealed that majority of the farmers were female, middle aged, educated up to middle level, small size family, marginal land holding, low farming experience, engaged in agriculture as a main occupation, with no official position in the society, belonged to middle class, low extension agency contact, medium extent of mass media utilization, low information seeking behavior, moderately localite, less cosmopoliteness, high level of scientific orientation, medium innovativeness and medium economic motivation respectively. The profile characteristics like education status, land holding, socio economic status, and extension agency contact, information seeking behavior, scientific orientation, innovativeness and economic motivation were positively and significantly correlated with the adoption of climate resilient practices. The R² value depicted that the gender, SES, land holding, farming experiences, personal localiteness, and information seeking behaviour, innovativeness and mass media exposure was the major contributory factors which explain 55.10 percent of variation in adoption level of farmers towards climate resilient practices.
