Farm mechanization implies the use of various power sources, improved farm tools and equipment, with a view to reduce the drudgery of the human beings and draught animals, thereby increasing crop production and productivity. The study was carried out to assess knowledge level of paddy growers about farm mechanization in paddy cultivation in Sindhanur and Manvi taluks of Raichur district. Ex post facto research design was employed for the study. Data were elicited from 120 paddy growers using structured interview schedule. Teacher made test was followed to assess the knowledge level of respondents. Implements that were considered in preparation of schedule were mould board plough, harrow, cultivator, rotavator, power tiller, puddler, paddy transplanter, cage wheel, cono weeder, sprayer, combine harvester and thresher Data were analyzed using appropriate statistical tools like frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. The results of the study revealed that nearly half (45.00 %) of the respondents had medium level of knowledge, followed by 31.67 and 23.33 per cent of respondents had high and low level of knowledge respectively.
