Abstract:

Extension is the ongoing process of transferring the useful information to the people (the communication dimension) and then assisting them to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to utilize this information or technology effectively (the educational dimension). Thus extension is the central mechanism in the farming development process, both in terms of technology transfer and human resource development. Information adoption among farming community is widely acknowledged as one of the critical factors for efficient and effective agricultural decision-making and it has been emphasised that the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools have potential to change the economy of livestock, agriculture and rural artisans in India. Particularly, mobile is used to disseminate timely information regarding best cultivation practices, seed availability, cropping pattern, weather forecasts, fertilizer usage, market information, organic practices and information about vaccination, insurance alerts, livestock diseases, exotic and indigenous breeds, feeding management, livestock rearing and government schemes on animal husbandry. Mobiles are going to revolutionise farming extension with all its incredible applications and will be great aid to the human resource of the extension system.
