Dr. N Anandaraja, Dr. KC Sivabalan
In India, the share of agriculture in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has declined from over half at the time of independence to less than one-ï¬fth in the current scenario. With vast majority producers being small and marginal farmers (accounting 86.2 %), production of food grains with galloping population is really a potential challenge. For translating research results into materialistic gains at farm level, well-functioning agricultural extension and advisory services are required. The perception of the extension work force is also need to be documented for any further step in reforming the extension system. A research study was conducted at Pudukottai and Sivaganga districts of Tamil Nadu so as to document the perception of extension functionaries on Transfer of Technology (ToT) as well as their constraints and suggestions for revamping the work efficiency.
