Abstract:

India is the land of agriculture. Agriculture is the major livelihood and employment provider in rural areas. Maize is the third most cultivated crop after rice and wheat in India as well as Bihar. There has been large variation in production of maize since independence. Establishment of Krishi Vigyan Kendra was a main initiative take by Government. The present study “Impact of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) training on knowledge behaviour of maize growers in Bettiah block of West Champaran district of Bihar” was conducted to discern the impact of KVK training program on knowledge behaviour covering one block, five purposively selected villages and 80+40 randomly selected trainees and non-trainees. A multi- stage sampling design was used to select farmers as respondents. The primary data were collected from respondents through pre-tested interview schedule. It was found that 51.25 per cent trainees respondents had medium level of knowledge about maize production practices while in non-trainees 47.50 per cent respondents had lowest level of knowledge about maize production practices. The result clearly indicate that overall knowledge level of trainees was higher than non-trainees.
