The tank irrigation system is one of the oldest and most effective irrigation methods for small and marginal farmers. In India, tank irrigation was adopted by maximum number of farmers, especially in southern Indian states and these states occupy around 60 percent of the total tank irrigated area. Tamil Nadu had a maximum area for cultivation of crops under tank irrigation next to Andhra Pradesh. The study was conducted with 120 tank irrigated paddy farmers in the Kancheepuram district. The overall awareness level of transplanting paddy results revealed that majority (75.80%) of the farmers were under medium level category, while 41.70% of them had medium level of awareness about direct seeding paddy technologies.
