Abstract:

The research study was carried out to know relationship between profile characteristics and perception of farmers about suitability of extension teaching methods in Telangana state. The data were collected from 120 respondents randomly representing 12 villages of two districts namely Nalgonda and Mahaboobnagar districts of Telangana state during the year 2016-17 using structured interview schedule. The findings revealed that the less than majority 41.66 percent of the respondents had very low level of perception about suitability of extension teaching methods, followed by low, medium, high and very high level of perception about suitability of extension teaching methods. This paper throws the light on the profile characteristics of the farmers and perception. Findings revealed that the independent variables viz. training received, innovativeness and access to learning resources exhibited positive and significant relationship at five per cent level of significance whereas age, education, mass media exposure, socio-political participation and use of extension teaching methods by extension personnel at one per cent level of significance. Farm size, farming experience, farm income, possession of communication tools, participation in extension activities and traditionalism exhibited non-significant relationship with perception about suitability of extension teaching methods by the farmers.
