Abstract:

The present study was conducted in the State Arunachal Pradesh during 2015-2016. Three districts viz., Papumpare, East Siang and West Siang were purposively selected based on the highest number of filled up post of agricultural officer. There are all total 64 officials in these three districts. So census method was followed for selecting the respondents. The ‘perceived training needs’ of respondent was the dependent variable of the study. The data were collected through interview schedule. The study also revealed that majority of the respondents had high level of training needs (63.30%). The most important training need areas are Plantation crop (2.90), Animal husbandry (2.90) and Plant Pathology (2.80). Based on the Training importance Score (TIS), the training needs were higher in micronutrient problem in acid soils and management; use of organic manure as fertilizer, azolla - its growth, production and uses; acid soils-fertility management and problems; green manuring, showing of nutrient deficiency symptom, fertilizers reactions in soil and fertility. With time the training needs of the extension personnel changes therefore, the training needs assessment should be done frequently and the important areas in which the extension personnel needs training should be considered while planning training for the extension personnel.
