The study was conducted purposively among 60 trainees and 60 non- trainees spread in 8 purposively selected villages undertaken from three blocks i.e. Chaka, Jasra and Kaundhiara blocks under the domain of KVK Allahabad district, Uttar Pradesh. Two variables taken namely, respondents’ socio-economic status, and their extent of adoption about mustard production practices. Data were collected by using pre-tested personal interview method. The collected data were tabulated, analyzed and interpreted with the help of appropriate statistical tools.
