Pigeonpea, as an important pulse crop, is an integral part of subsistence and sustainable production systems of Karnataka. A study was undertaken to assess the knowledge level of pigeonpea seed growers in Raichur district of Karnataka. Ex-post facto research design and purposive sampling technique is being used in the study. A total of 40 pigeonpea seed growers selected as a respondents for the study. The study revealed that more than two fifth (42.50%) of seed growers fall under high knowledge category, followed by medium (32.50%) and low knowledge (25.00%). The variables like education, farming experience, achievement motivation, management orientation and mass media participation were showed significant relationship with knowledge level of pigeonpea growers at 5 per cent level of probability. The R2 (0.672) value indicated that, the twelve independent variables put together, contributed a significant amount of variation (67.20%) in the overall knowledge level of pigeonpea seed growers.
