Abstract:

Climate changes, such as changes in temperatures, the amount, intensity and distribution of rainfall can have beneficial or adverse effects on world’s agriculture. The present study was conducted in Dharwad districts of Karnataka state during 2016-17 to find out the suggestions of the respondents to mitigate the ill effects of climate change on agriculture. Descriptive research design was followed with a sample of 120 respondents selected randomly. The findings revealed that majority of the farmers suggested insurance has to be extended to all crops, followed by providing financial support for soil nutrient enrichment, implementation of weather related insurance scheme effectively was suggested by the above mentioned farmers. This was probably due to the lack of knowledge on scientific practices and adaptation options by the farmers. Incentives/support for increasing the green manuring, support price has to be given to all the crop produce based on cost of cultivation, subsidies/compensation has to be given for the crops to make up the cost of cultivation due to weather aberrations. This was probably due to price fluctuation in the market. To minimize the ill effects of climate change on agriculture proper training on scientific methods, demonstration and extension strategies to be followed by the government, research station and extension functionaries.
