This study was conducted in Uttar Pradesh to evaluate the farmers' perceived effectiveness of paid extension services
provided by Agri Clinic entrepreneurs. Study found that the effectiveness was high among the beneficiary farmers. About
fifty per cent respondents perceived that the paid extension services were moderately effective while the rest perceived
them to be highly effective. Among the correlates, annual income, social participation, farm machinery owned were
negatively and significantly associated. Regression analysis of effectiveness index scores revealed the positive
contribution of age, education, farm size and negative contribution of farming experience, annual income and social
participation. Among the four components, the contribution of extent of adoption and farmers' satisfaction was very high
in farmers' perceived effectiveness of paid extension services provided by Agri Clinic entrepreneurs.
