The present study was conducted during 2021-22 in two taluks of Ramanagara district in Karnataka state to analyse the decision-making pattern of sericulture households on silkworm rearing practices. One hundred and twenty respondents (60 farm men and 60 farm women) were randomly selected from ten villages of Kanakapura and Channapatna taluks of Ramanagara district. The respondents were interviewed using a pre-tested schedule. The results revealed that there existed a highly significant difference in the mean decision-making pattern score between farm men and women in respect of the recommended silkworm-rearing practices. Further, the results revealed that age, education, experience in sericulture, innovativeness, achievement motivation, management orientation, risk orientation, economic motivation, cosmopoliteness, attitude towards sericulture, farming commitment, mass media exposure, training in sericulture, extension agency contact, farm scientist contact and extension participation of farm men and women had significantly contributed in making good to better decision-making on silkworm rearing practices.Pages: 33-36 | Views: 103 | Downloads: 46Download Full Article: Click Here
