The study was conducted in Hosanagara taluk of Shivamogga district in Karnataka state during the year 2019-20 to study the knowledge and adoption of paddy cultivation practices of farmers in paddy crop. A total of 120 respondents were randomly selected based on paddy cultivation area. Farmers were personally interviewed using a pre-tested interview schedule. Majority of the paddy farmers had medium (64.17%) to high (18.33%) knowledge level on paddy cultivation. More than half of respondents had medium (59.17%) to high (23.33%) adoption level with respect to paddy cultivation practices. Hence, there is a necessity to provide training programmes through KVKs and Agricultural Department for the improvement of paddy cultivation methods to the farmers in order to enhance their knowledge and adoption levels of paddy production technology.
