Abstract:

Present-day agriculture faces many challenges, such as low productivity, decreasing profitability, low scientific knowledge among farmers, high cost of inputs, non-availability of labour etc. To tackle these challenges, competent human resources in sufficiently large numbers are required in the near future. To achieve this, a renewed thrust for qualitative higher agriculture education is necessary. The present study has been conducted in Kolar, Tumkur and Chikkaballapur districts of Karnataka state to identify vivid knowledge and skills requirement for the agricultural graduates to perform effectively in private and government establishments for promotion of agricultural innovations. It was revealed that, the agricultural graduates should be trained more on innovative approaches of extension education for rapid transfer of agricultural technologies followed by conducting field trials and agri-business aspects. Large group of agricultural extension professionals expressed that, effective training should be given to the graduates on techniques to develop long-term extension program plans, techniques to establish management priorities and techniques of providing solutions to the problems. Therefore, agricultural extension courses need to be reoriented accordingly to address these issues.
