Abstract:

The objective of the present study was to ascertain the attitude of farmers towards the agricultural extension system of the State Department of Agriculture. The sample consisted of randomly selected 90 farmers from 09 villages of three sub-districts of Udaipur who were regularly in contact with the department functionaries for the last 3 years. For measurement of attitude, Thurston’s equal appearing interval technique was used to construct the scale. Personal interview technique was used for collecting data from the respondents. Frequency distribution, percentage and mean weighted score were used for the analysis of data. The outcome of the study divulges that nearly half of the respondents (47.78%) were having an unfavourable attitude towards the transfer of technology system of Department of Agriculture whereas, 32.22 per cent of the respondents were favourably disposed to the extension services of the State Department of Agriculture. There were only 20.00 per cent of the respondents who had a neutral attitude towards the services of the department. None of the respondents showed the most favourable and the most unfavourable attitude towards the extension system.
