Abstract:
This study was conducted to know the utilisation pattern of m-Kisan Portal by farmers of Nagarkurnool district of Telangana. Among the various projects in operation, m-Kisan Portal was selected for the study. Twelve respondents were selected randomly from each village that constituted 120 respondents for the study. It was observed that out of 120 respondents more than two-fifth (45.00 per cent) of farmers were utilising services with 5.83 per cent, 17.50 per cent and 21.67 per cent were using it weekly once, monthly once and whenever needed respectively. Low utilisation is because of poor awareness among farmers and lack of timely and relevant advisories. Further, the study also revealed that little more than one-third of the farmers (37.50 per cent) were utilising services for information regarding crop protection followed by 31.66 per cent for cultivation practices and weather information, 30.83 per cent for market prices and 25.83 per cent for quality inputs. Whereas 21.66 per cent, 20.00 per cent, 15.83 per cent and 13.33 per cent were utilizing m-Kisan for irrigation practices, livestock, alternate crops and post-harvest practices information respectively. From this study it was found that m-Kisan Portal utlisation among farmers usage was less. The reasons for this pattern may be because farmers were interested in getting information which need regular update like crop protection practices, crop production and weather information.
