Abstract:

Rice is one of the most important food crops of India. Major share of rice is cultivated during Kharif season. The KVK is innovative institution for disseminating new agricultural technologies and imparting many short days and long days vocational training programmes to rural youth and farmers. The farmers trained at KVK become more alert and fully aware citizen of the community. The KVK provides strong training support for training significant breakthrough in agricultural production. Keeping in view the above facts the study entitled as such given above. The study carried out in Kanpur Dehat and Lucknow districts in Central Uttar Pradesh. The data were collected through pretested interview schedule from randomly selected 160 trained and 160 untrained farmers. The data were analysed for logical conclusion. The trained respondents were having higher knowledge about improved rice cultivation technologies and high level of adoption in respect of HYV, seed rate, sowing time and sowing method, fertilizer application and plant protection measures of rice crop than untrained respondents. Investment pattern of trained respondents was more as compared to untrained respondents. The availability of input like seed, fertilizer, and plant protection measures enhanced the productivity and the employment in rice crop on farmers’ field.
