Abstract:

The study reveals that majority of agro input dealers (60%) had medium level of knowledge about selected crops with correct knowledge about recommended ‘varieties of crop’ and their agronomic, water management and weed management practices. Farmers perceived the agro advisory services rendered by input dealers as moderate level. Simplicity to operate, effective in pest and disease management’ and increases productivity of crops were the major dimensions for assessing the effectiveness of advisory services. Language problem while talking with dealers’ ‘lack of updated information’ and slow in addressing farmers problems were problems for farmers while not able to meet company personnel at urgent times’, ‘Lack of time for field visits on farmer request’, ‘Insufficient feedback from farmers about performance of agro-advisory services were problems for agro input dealers. Efforts of concerned department should put forward for establishing better coordination in between farmers and input dealers which may enhance effectiveness of extension roles of input dealers besides their economics role.
