Farmers' responses towards technology assessment and refinment were sutdied in five villages of Karge panchayat of
Mandar block in Ranchi District of Jharkhand. Results revealed that all the intervened technologies assessed by the
farmers' were agro-climatically more suitable, more profitable and more compatible, which contributed to their overall
appropriateness in comparison to the corresponding farmers' practices. Overall reaction of the respondents on intervened
technologies was found to be positive in terms of selected attributes i.e. socio-cultural compatibility, compatibility with
existing farming system components, divisibility of technology, simplicity, compatibility with internal resources of the
households, element of risk involved and visibility except their easy availability in the local markets. Majority of the
farmers' felt difficulties in accepting the recommended technologies as such in respect of most of the intervened
technologies and preferred the refined technologies which were suitable in their agro-ecological situation and socioeconomic condition.
