Abstract:
The present study entitled “Problems and Suggestions elicited by the respondents in adoption of technologies for Climate Resilient Agriculture (CRA)” had been initiated focusing to find out the problems and suggestions of farmers to drought. Ex-post facto research design was adopted in the present investigation. Nalgonda district from the Telangana state and Anantapur district from the Andhra Pradesh state were selected purposively, as they were covered under NICRA, where the CRA technologies introduced. One mandal was purposively selected from each district for the study. Two NICRA adopted villages were selected from each mandal. Thus total four NICRA villages were selected for the study. 30 farmers from each village were selected at random to make a sample of 120 respondents from NICRA adopted villages. Major problem elicited by the NICRA farmers were poor renovation of soil and water conservation measures due to lack of rain fall (check dams, contour bunds, trenches) (93.33%), poor availability of required inputs to all the farmers (95.83%), political interference in NRM (60.00%) and inadequate financial support (88.33%). Major suggestions expressed by the NICRA farmers were, regular de-siltation activity should be done by the government to enhance the water storage capacity (80.83%), use of high yielding verities in drought conditions (86.67%), organizing more training programmes by the department of agriculture with irrigation department to inculcate spirit for effective resource management (73.33%), increase the financial support from the government (90.00%) and improve the extension activities like training programme (82.50%).
