Abstract:

Climate change impacts on agriculture are being witnessed all over the world, but countries like India are more vulnerable in view of the huge population dependent on agriculture, excessive pressure on natural resources and poor coping mechanisms. NICRA is an ICAR initiative launched to focus on educating and demonstrating the climate resilient agriculture technologies to the farmers. The study was conducted in Ananthapuram district of Andhra Pradesh to find out the knowledge of farmers towards climate resilient technologies. Pertinent items were collected covering all aspects of climate resilient technologies. After getting jury opinion on the items of test, index of item difficulty, index of item discrimination and index of item validity were worked out. Out of 60 items, 39 were finally selected. The calculated value of reliability Co-efficient (0.78) for whole test found to be highly significant indicating that the test was highly stable and reliable. The social science researchers can make use of this to test the knowledge level of farmers on climate resilient technologies and thereby the extension personnel can intervene in the areas where the farmers lack the knowledge and see that the farmers adopt these technologies.
