Abstract:

Day by day the natural resources which are highly essential in agriculture like water, land, animal, vegetation are being degraded, eroded and dwindling. It is high time that the farmers should be sensitized and empowered to judicially utilize these resources. Management of natural resources beyond watershed areas, particularly in irrigated areas, is equally important. In fact, all the natural resources and the veritable water regimes – irrigated and arid, semi-arid and wet rainfed areas are all interlinked and interdependent. Due to the non-availability of a proper test to measure the knowledge of watershed farmers towards Natural Resource Management practices, it was thought necessary to construct a test for the purpose. The study mainly contemplates to find out the knowledge of watershed farmers towards natural resource management practices. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to develop a test for measuring the knowledge of watershed farmers towards Natural Resource Management practices. Pertinent items were collected covering all aspects of Natural Resource Management practices. After getting jury opinion on the items of test index of item difficulty, index of item discrimination and index of item validity were worked out. To administer the knowledge test a respondent is given one mark for each correct answer and zero mark for each wrong answer. Thirty items were finally selected from 60 items.
