In recent years, backyard poultry production has been extremely emphasized in sustaining and enhancing rural livelihoods for rural youth. In this farming, birds are kept in low-input and low- output system and can easily be managed by women and children of the households. Now-a-days as there is growing concern about meeting of per capita requirement of protein for rural citizens of India, poultry meat and especially eggs have been proved to be the best and cheapest solution to this as it is the best alternative for the small scale farmers to their subsidiary income with negligible input, this farming system needs an upliftment. Therefore a present study was undertaken in Karnataka Agriculture Price Commission (KAPC) adopted village of Jakkaladinni, Manavi (Tq) Raichur (Dist), Karnataka to know the impact of trainings on scientific method of backyard poultry farming among small and marginal poultry farmers participated in KVK Raichur for training programme. Collection of data regarding gain in knowledge and adopted level about improved poultry science technologies in backyard poultry farming were recorded before and after trainings. The findings revealed that the knowledge about new variety (96.67%). It was also found that majority 93.33% farmers gained knowledge in housing system (semi intensive and intensive) followed by balanced poultry feed (90.00%), vaccination (F-1) (83.33%), deworming (76.67%), lime stone grit feeding (63.33%), Scavenging habit (56.67%) and azolla feeding (40.00%) respectively. The current Study showed that very few farmers were known about scientific method of backyard poultry farming before training whereas, after training the level of adoption increases in new breed 40.00%, balanced poultry feeding 36.67%, deworming 33.34%, vaccination(F-1) 33.33%, housing system 30.00%, lime stone grit 26.67%, grazing 23.34% and azolla feeding 20.00%respectively. It was revealed that azolla cultivation and feeding technologies are very popular among poultry farmers and farmers are gaining knowledge about year-round production of azolla in their own farm itself under natural atmosphere. The overall adoption percentage by the farmers indicated that training had significant impact on uptake of new technologies.
