Abstract:

The present study was conducted during 2017–18 in Mandya district of Karnataka. Two villages each in Tail end area and Head reach area of Krishna Raja Sagar (KRS) Dam were randomly selected. In each selected village 25 paddy growers were randomly selected. Thus 100 farmers (50 each in head reach and tail end area) constituted the sample for study. The findings reveal that majority of paddy growers interviewed belonged to middle age, primary school education, high farming experience, medium level of cosmopoliteness, risk orientation, social participation, innovative proneness and scientific orientation in both Head reach and Tail end regions, whereas Tail end respondents were having high extension participation and extension contact in comparison to Head reach farmers. Lack of sufficient knowledge and guidance about the climate resilient technologies, limited extension activities about climate resilient technologies and Non availability of labour to adopt climate resilient technologies are the major constraints of Head reach growers Whereas untimely release and improper scheduling of water in the canals, uneven and untimely rainfall and non-availability of labour are severe constraints reported by Tail end growers. Major suggestions offered are creating awareness to the farmers on scientific water management, involvement of local farmers in decision making in releasing water to the canals and Ensuring timely availability of inputs by Head reach growers, whereas Involvement of local farmers in decision making in releasing water to the canals, creating awareness to the farmers on scientific water management and increasing subsidies on micro irrigation structures by Tail end growers.
