Abstract:

A study was conducted to know the clientele served and type of extension functions emphasized by the extension personnel of public extension organizations in Hyderabad – Karnataka region of Karnataka during 2013-14. A sample of 38 extension personnel from Krishi Vigyan Kendras under University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur and 38 extension personnel from Raita Samparka Kendras under Karnataka State Department of Agriculture were selected for the study. The data was collected from the respondents using structured interview schedule developed for the study. The collected data was analyzed using appropriate statistical tools. The results of the study revealed that, majority of the extension personnel in Krishi Vigyan Kendras (52.63 %) and Raita Samparka Kendras (42.11 %) belonged to medium to low satisfaction category with respect to facilities and resources availability in the organization. Over one third (36.84 %) of the extension personnel of Krishi Vigyan Kendras belonged to high satisfaction category with respect to communication in the organization and In case of Raita Samparka Kendras, higher percentage (44.74 %) of the extension personnel belonged to medium level of communication satisfaction category. Majority (47.37 %) of the extension personnel in both the extension organizations belonged to medium level of co-ordination. Youth farmers in case of Krishi Vigyan Kendras and small-scale subsistence farmers in case of Raita Samparka Kendras were the important group of clientele targeted. Transfer of technology is the most important extension function emphasized by both extension organizations. Hence extension organizations should emphasize and prioritize capacity building and empowerment of farmers, youth and women empowerment and entrepreneurship development.
