recommended Water Productivity practices. Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Buldana and Yavatmal were selected purposively as
these KVKs have organized trainings on water productivity practices. From each KVK , 25 respondents who attended the
trainings were selected randomly. Thus a total 50 respondents were personally contacted for data collection. The study

productivity practices. The relational analysis showed that education qualification, risk reference, sources of information,
sources of irrigation and innovativeness were positively correlated with the extent of knowledge of recommended water
