Kota region comprises four districts viz., Kota, Baran, Bundi and Jhalawar. Out of these two districts viz., Kota and Jhalawar were selected purposively for this study because of highest area and production. Kota and Jhalawar districts comprise five and seven tehsils, respectively. Out of which two tehsil from Kota (Degod and Ramganj Mandi) and two tehsil from Jhalawar (Khanpur and Manohar Thana) (as per the data of 2014-15) district was selected randomly. Out of these 6 villages were selected from each selected tehsil on the basis of random sampling method. Thus, the total 24 villages were selected. List of all the soybean cultivators was prepared from each of the selected village, with the help of patwari and agriculture supervisor, eight to twelve farmers were selected by using proportionate random sampling technique as per availability so as to make the sample size 220. It was found that the majority of the farmers (110) were found to have favourable attitude (61.77 per cent) towards recommended soybean cultivation practices whereas 11.57 and 26.66 per cent of farmers were having most favourable and least favourable attitude, respectively. To develop attitude scale and measure the attitude of farmers towards recommended Soybean cultivation practices.
