Abstract:

ATMA focused on a bottom-up planning process in order to make the entire extension system farmer-driven and farmer accountable. This has helped to strengthen research and extension capabilities, restructure public extension services and test new institutional arrangements for technology transfer with the involvement of all the stakeholders of Government and Non-Governmental agencies at the district level. The state of Uttar Pradesh is having 75 districts. Out of these districts, district Barabanki were selected purposively for study. The total number of blocks in the Barabanki district is fifteen (15). Out of there are three blocks operated this project, one (1) block namely, Banikodar were selected randomly. ATMA farmers were selected from a prepared list and three villages were selected from a selected block, similarly, three villages were also selected from the same selected block that is not covered under ATMA project for a selection of Non-ATMA farmers. Therefore, a total number of six villages were selected to select respondents. With the objective of the knowledge level of ATMA and Non-ATMA farmers about improved practices of wheat cultivation, a total of 120 farmers in which 60 ATMA farmers and 60 Non-ATMA farmers were selected. The data collected from the farmers with the help of well-prepared interview schedule. It was stated the majority (53.33 per cent) of the farmers from ATMA category had a medium extent of knowledge followed by 26.67 per cent had high and 20 per cent had a low extent of knowledge. While in case of Non-ATMA category the majority (45 per cent) of farmers had a medium extent of knowledge followed by 33.33 per cent were having a low extent of knowledge and only 21.67 per cent have a high extent of knowledge, respectively about improved wheat crop technology. It was concluded that farmers of the ATMA category showed a higher extent of adoption of improved wheat cultivation technologies pertaining to wheat cultivation practices than those of the Non-ATMA category.
