Abstract

The Central government efforts to help the farmers by providing fund to meet the agricultural and other household needs through direct benefit transfer has gained importance in the recent years. The present study was carried out in Tumkur district of Karnataka 2020 with the objetives; To evaluate the utilization pattern of PM-KISAN scheme and; To analyse the impact of PM-KISAN scheme on technology adoption and on during farm income. The study revealed that the timely transfer of fund has helped farmers in carrying out timely agricultural opertions.The scheme has enabled greater proportion of beneficiary farmers to adopt improved production technology, realisation of higher amount of gross returns from groundnut production as compared to that by non-beneficiaries. The increase in gross returns is found to be due to not only use of right kind and dosage of inputs but also due to adotion of improved production technology. The timeliness of receipt of installment amount influenced its use for agriculture purpose leading to generation of higher income. The PM KISAN scheme is beneficial to farmers and needs to be popularized.
