Two blocks from each districts and one village from each selected blocks were selected and a proportionate sample of 60 male and 60 female respondents were selected randomly from the selected villages. The pre-exposure knowledge about recommended practices in cotton cultivation was assessed and respondents were exposed to the prepared and standardized media and the gain in knowledge after media exposure was tested. Results of the study revealed that most of the respondents belonged to lower middle age group, upper caste, female respondents were illiterate, male respondents were educated upto matric/higher secondary, farming occupation, belonged to joint family, had medium sized family, possessed pucca houses. Various aspects were covered in the prepared media (booklet and compact disc) such as cotton varieties, seed rate, seed treatment, depth of sowing, distance between row and plants, fertilizers and doses, nutrient deficiency, weedicides, pests and diseases management, protective cloths, soil health card, drip irrigation and tractor mounted fertilizer broadcaster. Significant gain in knowledge was observed in most of the aspects. High gain in knowledge was observed in cotton varieties, seed rate, seed treatment, depth of sowing, fertilizers and doses, cotton pests, tractor mounted fertilizer broadcaster, protective cloths for spray and soil health card.
