Abstract:

Agriculture is the dominant sector of Indian economy. The progress of the nation is therefore, directly linked with advancement in agriculture. KVK play a vital role in carrying out various developmental activities on farmers’ fields to increase the agricultural production and improve their living standards. The KVK was launched in 1988-89 in all 11 districts viz., Dimapur, Kohima, Kiphire, Longleng, Mokokchung, Mon, Phek, Peren, Tuensang, Wokha and Zunheboto of Nagaland. The study revealed that majority of the farmers belonged to middle aged group, educated between primary and high school level, had medium level of annual income with medium size of land holding. Majority of them had medium (10-20) years of farming experience, use of sources of information and high level of participation in extension activities. It was observed that the majority (74.20%) of the respondents had medium level of knowledge towards the training programme of KVK prevailing in the area followed by 17.50% having low and 8.30% having high knowledge level respectively. In respect of correlation analysis between knowledge level and the independent variables, it shows that age, education, annual income, marital status, family type, size of family, occupation and land holding had positive and non-significant. Whereas, participation in extension activities, social participation, innovativeness and mass media exposure was found to be significant. The major constraints faced by the respondents were lack of transport facility, inadequate credit facility, lack of promotional opportunities, non-availability of timely technical information, irregular supply of inputs etc.
