Abstract:

The present study conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Adilabad to evaluate mobile based advisory services on agri and allied sectors in the district with a sample of 120 farmers during 2018-19 to 2019-20. The study found high relevancy (57.50%), high timelines (71.67%), high accuracy (60.00%), high knowledge levels (48.33%) and medium adoption (42.50%) of the advisories. The advisories sent through AKPS were accessible, adoptable and useful to the farmers because the advisories were mostly need based, problem solving and preventive in nature.
