Abstract:

The present study was carried out in two taluks namely Sira and Pavagada of Tumkur District in Karnataka state during 2017-18 to understand the economic performance of Pomegranate growers. A sample of 90 pomegranate growers was selected by using random sampling technique for the study.

Variables such as land holding, farming experience, annual income, extension participation, extension contact, scientific orientation, innovative proneness, market orientation, education, mass media participation and Cosmopoliteness had positive and significant relationship with economic performance of pomegranate growers. Major constraint faced by the pomegranate growers was fluctuation in market price and they suggestion given by them was to provide disease resistant varieties and providing regular technical know-how on improved cultivation practices.
