Abstract:

The present study has been initiated focusing on tribal farmers knowledge, attitude and manifested behaviour towards seed banking. The study was conducted in Andhra Pradesh state (erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh). Ex-post facto Research Design was used in the present investigation. Random sampling method was used to select the respondents. A total of 240 respondents were selected for the study from three districts. The results revealed that majority of the tribal farmers (58.75%) were found to possess favourable attitude towards seed banking. 47.5% of the tribal farmers were found to have medium level of knowledge on seed banking activities. They have knowledge on special storage structures like gunny bags, bottle guard shell, pots, mud bins that occupy less space. Majority of the tribal farmers (62.8%) had high seed banking behavior. There was a positive and significant relationship between seed banking behaviour of the tribal farmers and the variables viz., age, farming experience, land holding, cosmo politeness, extension contact, training, socio-politico participation, risk orientation, storage facilities and religious belief.
