The present study was carried out in Kolar and Chikkaballapura districts of Karnataka state during 2018-2019 to assess the knowledge of ragi growers towards Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA) and also to find out the extent of participation of ragi growers in the extension activities organized under ATMA. Ninety ragi growers who availed the benefits under ATMA were purposively selected for the study. The results revealed that a majority of beneficiary ragi growers (72.23%) had medium to high level of overall knowledge regarding ATMA. It was found that more than half of the beneficiary ragi growers had participated in field visits (57.77%), exposure visits (57.77%), meetings/discussion (51.11%) and demonstrations (51.11%). Whereas, a majority of beneficiary ragi growers had not participated in extension activities such as: agricultural campaign (78.89%), farm school (67.78%), kissan gostis (farmers-scientist’s interaction) (64.45%), district level exhibitions (57.78%) and Krishi mela/fairs (51.11%). Further, the results revealed that education, achievement motivation, management orientation, cosmopoliteness, innovativeness, mass media exposure, training on ATMA, extension agency contact and extension participation of beneficiary ragi growers had significant to highly significant association with their knowledge level regarding ATMA
