Abstract:

The present study was carried out in Chikkaballapura and Kolar districts of Karnataka state to know the impact of Agriculture Technology Management Agency (ATMA) on ragi productivity and to identify the constraints of beneficiary ragi growers in ATMA. Ninety beneficiary ragi growers were interviewed using a pre-tested interview schedule. The results revealed that there was an increase in grain and straw yield by 5.05 and 5.30 per cent, respectively after the implementation of ATMA in Chikkaballapura and Kolar districts. A majority of beneficiary ragi growers had consulted Agriculture Officer (73.33%) and viewed television (75.55%) for getting information on ATMA. Lack of interest in attending farm school, lack of marketing facilities, inadequate number of farmers organization/farmers interest groups on ragi crop, non- availability of agricultural inputs (certified seeds, fertilizer, etc.) on time, and non-availability of adequate quantity of agricultural inputs were the five major problems faced by beneficiary ragi growers in ATMA.
