The study was conducted in the state of Uttarakhand, with two purposively selected KVKs Dhakrani representing the plains region of Garhwal division and Bageshwarre presenting the hill region of Kumaon division. A simple random sampling technique was used to select 160 respondents from eight villages from both KVK. Finding of the study revealed that, majority of the beneficiaries had middle age group, educated up to higher secondary, medium family size, marginal land holding, medium media ownership, extension contact, information seeking behaviour and social participation. Findings regarding effectiveness revealed favourable perceptions towards training programmes, teaching & subject matter/ quality of scientists, physical facilities, advisory services & supplies and other supporting activities. However, unfavourable perceptions towards front line demonstration (FLD) and on farm trail (OFTs) was found. Over all farmers’ perceptions towards effectiveness of KVKs was medium (47.00%). Performance of training programmes and FLDs of KVK Bageshwar was found better as compared to KVK Dhakrani, whereas performance in respect of OFTs and other extension activities of KVK Dhakrani was found better as compared to KVK Bageshwar.
