Abstract:

An attempt was made to analyze the impact and up-scaling of technologies disseminated by KVK, Ramanagara at both micro (IFSD initiative) and macro level (district Level). For the purpose of the study, primary data available at data bank of KVK along with the supplementary data from the farmers was used. To create awareness about various technologies to farmers at macro level, KVK adopted cognizance, approach where in 271 group discussion meetings were conducted covering 5069 farmers. A great majority of the farmers (89%) could adopt the jasmine budworm management practices demonstrated by KVK resulting in increased income of Jasmine growers to Rs.87654/- per ha from Rs.46874/-. The analysis of query type seeking information revealed that 16097 farmers sought information through telephone calls apart from agriculture short message service (4700 farmers)  KVK, Ramanagara implemented IFSD project covering 2871 stakeholders from 2011-2014. The effect of technology induction to strengthen enterprises of stakeholders was valuable. Induction of fruit fly traps in mango, reduced the fruit fly incidence by 52 % resulting in additional increase in income of Rs.9400/- per ha of mango. The issues of way forward for the KVK and the entire stakeholders involved are to up-scale the interventions in terms of technologies considering vertical and horizontal spread. There is a need to build conditions for enhanced crop productivity in the present climate change scenario.
