The study was carried out in the two district of Tripura, viz., West Tripura and South Tripura with randomly selected 200 rice farmers from purposively selected 4 blocks of the districts. The State of Tripura is located between 22o 56” and 24o 32” North latitude and between 90o 09” and 92o 20” East latitude. Tripura is a landlocked State. System of Rice Intensification (SRI) method of paddy cultivation is important because it needs less seed, less water, less fertilizer and less attack of pest & disease but per hectare yield gain is more than traditional method of paddy cultivation. Rice is the major food crop in Tripura with 75 per cent of its cropped area devoted to the production of rice (Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Tripura). In terms of production it ranks next to Assam in North East states. In Tripura state as a whole a large section of the SRI farmers possessed knowledge high to medium level (39.5 % to 35.0 %) on SRI technology.
