Horticulture Zone Tangmarg comprises of 65 villages out of which 35 villages were under cherry cultivation. From 35 villages 06 villages were selected purposively on the basis of maximum area under cherry cultivation. From the selected 06 villages, 120 cherry growers were selected through proportionate allocation method. Invariable farmer characteristics were undertaken to assess the training needs of farmers. The study revealed that majority of the respondents (54.14%) were of young age group (upto 35 years), majority (57.17%) of the respondents had received education upto middle school. The size of land holding of small number of the respondents (6.66%) was medium (2.01-5 ha) and majority of the respondents were having medium family size of (5- 10) members. So far as annual income is concerned small number of respondents (15%) were having high annual income (above Rs 260000). Majority of the respondents (67.50) have farming experience of below 11 years. Majority (43.33%) of the respondents were having low source of information and (47.50%) of the respondents were having medium economic motivation. So far as risk proneness and scientific orientation is concerned majority of the respondents (39.17%) were having low risk proneness and majority (56.66%) was having low scientific orientation. It was observed that Education, land holding, annual income, Farming experience, Scientific orientation, Risk proneness and economic motivation were positively correlated with the training needs whereas, Age, Experience and Source of information were negatively correlated and highly significant. It was concluded that need based cost effective training programme and strategies need to be tailored, so that human resource be put to effective use for achieving sustainable cherry production.
