Attitude is considered a psychological construct. It is the way a person views something or trends to behave towards it, often in an evaluative way. Mindset or attitude towards a particular technology or cultivation practice is the key to success in any enterprise. Thus, attitude of farmers play an important role in adoption of sustainable farming. In the present study, a scale was developed to measure the attitude of the farmers towards sustainable potato farming using Likert’s summative rating technique. The final scale consists of 21 statements. Split half technique was used to test the reliability of scale. Reliability co-efficient of the scale was found to be 0.72. Validity of scale was tested using content validity. The reliability and validity of the scale indicated the consistency and precision of the results using the developed scale. The pre tested scale was used for measuring attitude of farmers towards sustainable potato cultivation in north-east India.

Keywords: Attitude scale, potato farming, sustainability, reliability, validity
