  • Impact of Watershed Development Projects Implemented in Kerala

    • Authors: Babu Mathew, Venu Prasad H D, Naveena K
      Pages: 6531 - 6543
      Abstract: In the present study we look into the impact of 12 different watershed projects implemented in Kerala under the Western Ghats Development Programme on the water availability and soil conservation. The impact of the watersheds was assessed by examining the benefits that each watershed offered to the sample respondents, people participation in watershed programmes at different stages, budget utilization and target achieved with the help of a semi-structured interview schedule. The data collected were analysed using cluster analysis and ANOVA. The results of the data differentiate 12 watersheds into two different clusters with 4 watersheds in one cluster and the remaining watersheds in another. The results of the study found that there is a significant difference in people's participation with respect to different stages of project execution in different watersheds and also within each watershed. The study also pinpoints difference in achieving target and budget utilization among different watersheds.

  • Attitude of Agricultural Officers towards Training and their
           Perceived Constraints

    • Authors: Raahalya Sandipamu, G.S Sreedaya
      Pages: 6544 - 6548
      Abstract: The present study was undertaken in two zones of Kerala, India. A sample of 90 Agricultural
      Officers (AOs) was randomly selected and information was gathered and analyzed. A well structured interview schedule was used for data collection. Attitude of the AOs towards training was measured and Garret score ranking method was used to rank the constraints faced by the AOs. The results revealed that majority of the Agricultural Officers had neutral attitude towards training and major constraints faced by AOs were lack of time for extension activities, lack of transport facilities and lack of incentives reward system for better performance.

  • Factors affecting Yield Gap of Rice in North Kerala

    • Authors: Sneha N, Allan Thomas, M A Nishan, Seema B
      Pages: 6549 - 6557
      Abstract: Yield gap is an important indicator for any crop. Rice being the staple food, in order to meet
      the increased demand of rice juxtaposed with an increasing population growth, it becomes important to study the factors affecting yield gap that will emerge as the most significant solution, which in turn serves to bridge the yield gap. This study was conducted in 7 districts of Kerala during the year 2020-2021 to find out the factors affecting the yield gap of rice. Altogether, 105 rice farmers from the districts of Kasaragod, Kannur, Wayanad, Kozhikode, Malappuram, Thrissur formed the sample. Ex-post facto research design was used for the study. The yield gap index derived from the study ranged from 10 to 30 per cent. The results of the Principal Component Analysis revealed that five components namely climatic factors, biological factors, socio-economic factors, institutional/policy related factors and factors related to technology transfer were critically influencing the yield gap of rice.

  • Women Farmers' Awareness of Government Agricultural Schemes in the
           North Eastern Region of India

    • Authors: ANUSHREE BARUAH, Madan Mohan G.
      Pages: 6558 - 6565
      Abstract: The Indian agricultural sector employs 4/5th of the female workforce in the country, with 48% of self-employed farmers being women. Existing literature portrays a wide information gap separating the woman farmer from basic knowledge with regards to increasing production, efficiency, and income of their farm activities. This paper makes an attempt to study the awareness of women farmers in North Eastern Region (NER) of India about active agricultural schemes in the country. The findings reveal lack of awareness of governmental agricultural schemes as a lacuna in the agricultural progress of women farmers in the NER.
