Abstract:

An attempt was made to develop a standardized scale to analyze the attitude of farmers towards livelihood diversificationusing summated rating methods suggested by Likert and Edwards. The attitude scale developed was found to be highly reliable and valid. The final attitude scale consisted of 15 statements and this scale was administered to 30 farmers in Chikkaballapura district in Karnataka during 2017-2018 to analyse their attitude of farmers towards livelihood diversification. These farmers were personally interviewed using schedule. The results revealed that a vast majority of farmers (73.33%) had favourable to more favourable attitude towards livelihood diversification. Age, education, annual family income, awareness about livelihood diversification, aspirations, farming experience, economic motivation, management orientation, innovative proneness, mass media participation and extension participation of farmers had a positive and significant relationship with the attitude towards livelihood diversification.
