Abstract:
Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy, even during COVID period agriculture was the only sector which majorly contribute towards country’s GDP. Climate change significantly affects the productivity of agricultural output. The present study was conducted in one district of Haryana state and the study sample was selected by using simple random sampling. Findings of the study indicate that all the farmers were found to be quiet well aware of the climate change phenomena. Majority of the farmers reported that increase in temperature, erratic rainfall, extreme weather conditions and diminishing agricultural yield are the indicators of climate change. According to the farmers, main causes of climate change are deforestation, overpopulation, rapid industrialization etc. Majority of the farmers describe that water accumulation after heavy rainfall, crop failures and extreme weather conditions such as heat waves are the major consequences of climate change. Data from the study will helpful in making a roadmap for policy formulation, designing agriculture development programmes for adaptation strategies and mitigation measures.
