The present study was conducted to know the impact of Krishibhagya scheme on beneficiaries of Hyderabad-Karnataka region during the year 2017-18. The present study was conducted in six districts namely Bidar, Kalaburagi, Yadgir, Raichur, Koppal and Ballari coming under the jurisdiction of University of Agricultural Sciences Raichur, Karnataka. From each district 5 Krishibhagya beneficiaries (including both Farm pond and Polyhouse) and 5 non beneficiaries were selected randomly following simple random sampling technique. The data was collected from the respondents using structured interview schedule prepared for the purpose. The collected data was analysed using appropriate statistical tools. The results of the study revealed that, there is a 17 to 53 per cent increase in average yield of important crops due to implementation of Farm pond under Krishibhagya scheme, Govt. of Karnataka and increase in income of the beneficiary farmers from Rs. 8800 to Rs. 43848 ac-1. There is a 31 to 58 per cent increase in yield of important horticulture crops due to polyhouse/shade net in Krishibhagya scheme. Hence there is a need to continue and implement the krishibhagya scheme to other areas. There is a need to educate the farmers to go for cultivation of high value commercial crops instead of low value crops as the irrigation facility is available. Administrators and policy makers should think of adding more components to the scheme in order to improve the socio-economic status of the farmers and for sustainable agriculture development.

Keywords: Beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries, Farm pond, Income, Krishibhagya, Impact, Polyhouse and Shade net
