Abstract:

A study on farm mechanization level of farmers in north Karnataka was conducted in Koppal District during 2015-16. The 150 number of respondents were selected for the study. By personal interview method the data was collected. The results showed that, 41.33 per cent of respondents had medium level of knowledge on farm implements, 30.67 per cent and 28.00 per cent of respondents had low and high level of knowledge on farm implements, respectively. More than 80 percent of the farmers were adopted sprayers (83.33%), M.B. plough (82.67%), more than 60 percent of the farmers were adopted Cultivators (72.67%), Rotavators (64%), Blade harrow (61.33%), respectively. This was mainly due to constraints faced by framers like, drudgery involved in farm operations, scarcity of labours, it has became necessary to the farmers to adopt farm mechanization. Whereas least percentage of adoption was found in paddy transplanter (1.33%), Hoes (3.33%), Seed cum fertilizer drill (6.67%), Fertilizer drill (8%), respectively. This was mainly due to high cost and lack of awareness.
