Abstract:
The study was undertaken in two blocks of East Khasi Hills District of Meghalaya to focus on the training needs correlation with the socio-economic and psychological profile of Niang Megha rearing farmers. A total of 100 respondents were selected and the data obtained were subjected to statistical analysis. The relationship between training needs and independent variables were computed using spearman’s correlation coefficient. The results revealed that the independent variables such as age, family size, and family type were negatively and non-significantly correlated with training needs in scientific pig farming. However, the other variables like social participation, occupation and annual income from pig farming had positive and non-significant correlation with the perceived training needs. Pig herd size had negative and significant correlation (p<0.05) with training needs whereas, education, information source utilization and knowledge had positive and highly significant correlation (p<0.01) with training needs of Niang Megha rearing farmers.
