The study was conducted in Tiruppur District of Tamil Nadu. A sample size of 120 was fixed for the study considering the limitation of time and other resources. From the list of farmers in each village, farmers cultivating Coconut crop were identified and selected from the selected six villages by using the proportionate random sampling. During the survey, the researcher could ascertain that most of the farmers were members in social organizations such as co-operative agricultural credit society, farmer discussion groups, milk society, etc, mainly to avail the benefits given by the organization extension agency contact respectively. Lack of awareness and interest of the respondent to know about improved coconut growers practice might be the reason for their poor to medium extension agency contact.
