agriculture. Krishi Vigyan Kendras are functional in carrying out extension activities in accordance with government
programme schedule and providing support to raise the skill of the farmers which will help them to increase their farm
productivity. On the basis of findings and observations of the study, it may be concluded that most of the farmers were

KVK beneficiaries differed significantly in case of knowledge, attitude and skill. New agricultural technologies
dissemination through KVK were adopted by the farmers to a considerable extent. Highest adoption was found by the
