Abstract:

Attitude influences an individual's choice of action and responses to any services, incentives and challenges. The attitude of the farmers and farm women towards front line extension system of ICAR has a direct bearing on the performance of the system. A scale was constructed to measure the attitude of farmers and farm women towards the agriculture extension system of ICAR. For this, Thurston equidistance method of scale construction was used. The scale consisted of final 20 statements including ten positive and ten negative statements. Reliability of the scale was calculated by using reliability coefficient (Cronbach alpha) was 0.93. The validity of the scale was tested by the expert’s judgments. The reliability and validity of the scale indicate its consistency and precision of the results. This scale can be used to measure the attitude of farmers and farm women to study their attitude towards front line extension system of ICAR.
