From each district two tanks (one from beneficiary village and one from non-beneficiary village) were selected. A total of 360 (180 beneficiary farmers and 180 non-beneficiary farmers) farmers from 12 tanks were considered as sample for the study. Profile characteristics viz. age, education, farm size, farming experience, extension contact, information seeking behavior, mass media exposure, empathy, socio – politico participation, scientific orientation, economic motivation, achievement
