Abstract:

The study was conducted purposively in selected 24 villages of Male mahadeshwara Hills , Chamarajanagara District, Karnataka. The study revealed that cent per cent of soliga farmers perceived Nutririch crop varieties, Soil sample collection and analysis, Seed rate and timely harvesting as more useful followed by application of fertilizers (80.00%), Nutrifarms /Kitchen garden establishments (77.33%). Cent per cent of the soliga farmers completely adopted Nutririch crop varieties, Soil sample collection and analysis, Seed rate, spacing and timely harvesting, followed by application of fertilizers, and Nutrifarms /Kitchen garden establishments (80.00%). Many of the soliga farmers have not adopted vermicompost (45.00%), intercropping (48.67%) and Value addition of agricultural produce (10.00%). Out of seven characteristics selected for the study, five viz., education, land holding, social participation, risk orientation and decision making ability had significant relationship with perception and adoption. Besides this, innovative proneness had significant relationship with perception. Thus, it is necessary to intensify the extension educational programmes such as trainings, discussion meetings, demonstrations, field visits etc., for needed perceptual changes in nutririch crop cultivators. This will enable the soliga farmers to adopt nutririch crop cultivation practices which in turn will help in the production of quality seeds of nutririch crops and enhance the nutritional status.
