Six villages were selected randomly from the zone and 120 growers were randomly selected by using proportionate sampling technique for the study. It was found that Cent percent of the respondents had full knowledge of recommended varieties, root stock, soil type, budding method of propagation and time of harvesting. Majority of the respondents had full knowledge of recommended application of FYM (78.33%), no. of applications of urea (82.5%), grafting  method of propagation (58.33%), rusetting management (60%), Sanjose scale (49.17%), while (80.83%), (88.3%) of the respondents had partial knowledge of recommended spacing, applications of urea respectively, DAP (89.17%), MOP (90%), no. of applications of  MOP (88.33%). Whereas, (64.17%) respondents had no knowledge of recommended pollinizers, orchard layout (68.30%), (52.5%), (55%) and (59.17%) applied micro-nutrient, concentration of CaCl2and appropriate time for application respectively training and pruning system (98.3%). While in case of overall knowledge (70%) of the respondents had medium level of knowledge.
