The present study was conducted in Lakhimpur district of Assam to measure the level of knowledge and awareness of farmers on climate resilient agro-technologies. A total of 160 farmers, 80 NICRA (National Innovations on climate resilient agriculture) participant farmers and 80 non-participant farmers were selected randomly from the 8 purposively selected villages. The findings of the study revealed that majority of the participant farmers (56.25%) had medium level of knowledge while for nonparticipant farmers (83.75%) had low level knowledge on climate resilient agro-technologies. The t- value 3.47 indicates significant difference of knowledge level between two group of famers which may be due to intervention of INCRA project. It was seen that all the participant farmers (100%) were aware about all the fourteen climate resilient agro-technologies considered in the study, while differential level of awareness was observed among the non-participant farmers. The percentage of non-participant farmers varied from 31.25 per cent to 93.75 percent as regards to their level of awareness regarding the climate resilient agro-technologies under consideration. The existing extension efforts made under the project need to be strengthened and streamlined to enhance the knowledge and awareness level of participant farmers on climate resilient agro-technologies.
