Abstract:

The study was conducted in Mandya and Srirangapatana taluks of Mandya district of Karnataka state to know the attitude level of trained farm women on value added products of ragi. The data were collected from a sample of 120 trained farm women. The study revealed that, 41.70 per cent of respondents fall under more favourable attitude category, followed by 30.80 and 27.50 per cent of respondents fall under less favourable and favourable attitude category, respectively. Family size had a negative and significant relationship with attitude level whereas, innovative proneness, extension participation, extension contact and mass media exposure had a positive and significant relationship with attitude level. Further, the result also established significant (p<0.01) association between educational status and type of family with attitude level of trained farm women. However, the association between marital status and attitude level on value added products of ragi found to be non-significant (p>0.01).
