The tank irrigation system is one of the 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. Tamilnadu 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. In this district, Paddy (Oryza sativa L) is the major cultivated crop under a tank irrigated area of 56,267 ha. With this regard, an attempt was made to assess the knowledge level of recommended technologies paddy under tank irrigation The overall knowledge level of transplanting paddy results revealed that three fourth (75.00%) of the farmers were under medium level category, while less than two-fifths (39.20 percent) of them had medium level of knowledge about direct seeding paddy technologies in the study area.
