Abstract:

The present study was undertaken during the year 2015-16 in the selected two taluks of Raichur district of Karnataka state. Based on maximum area under chilli cultivation, two talukas were selected. From each taluka, three villages were selected based on maximum number of chilli growing farmers. From each village, 20 chilli growing farmers were selected thus constitute a sample size of 120 for the study. The data was collected from the respondents using structured interview schedule developed for the purpose. The data collected was analyzed and tabulated using appropriate statistical tools. The results of the study revealed that, majority of the chilli farmers possessed high (40.00 %) level of knowledge about integrated pest management practices. Cent per cent of chilli farmers have knowledge about summer ploughing, removal of previous crop residues, application of FYM, trimming of field bunds, intercultivation followed by benefits of summer ploughing (98.33 %), practice of crop rotation (96.67 %) and raised nursery bed (80.00 %). Cent percent of farmers possessed knowledge about regular destruction of damaged fruits at each harvest. Around sixty per cent of respondents (62.50 %) had knowledge about use of neem seed kernel extract. Cent per cent of the farmers had knowledge about control of fruit borers, thrips and mites.
