The maximum participation of ATMA stakeholders was found in identification of research issue and implementation of the farmer participatory research (FPR). Stakeholders of ATMA perceived that technology transferred to the farmers with some important characteristics which were their designed for improving farmers over all income, need based, timely, affordable by the farmers, at the doorstep of farmers, easy to operate and acceptable to farming community.
