Abstract:

The present study was undertaken in the year 2013 in Sawai Madhopur District of Rajasthan in order to know the information seeking behavior of tribal guava farmers and to find out the association of selected independent variables with the information seeking behavior of guava farmers. A sample of 100 guava farmers selected randomly from 10 villages having highest area under guava plantation. The study leads to the conclusion that majority (76 per cent) of both type of guava farmers i. e. peripheral and distant were having medium level of information seeking behavior followed by 13 per cent having low and 11 per cent were having high level of information seeking behavior. The “Z” value between the scores of the information seeking of the peripherals and distant guava farmers was –0.74, which was non-significant. This shows that there was no significant difference between the peripherals and distant guava farmers in their information seeking behavior. The study also reveals that there was significant association between the information seeking behavior of total guava farmers and their age, education level, social participation, size of land holding, farm power, innovation proneness and annual income, similarly non-significant association was found between the information seeking behiviour with the family size and farming experience of the guava farmers.
