Abstract:
Dharmapuri district is one of the districts where tribal farmers produce millet on a larger scale, it was purposefully chosen for this study to examine the socio-economic impact of TNAU Millet varieties and technologies. For this study, the ex-post facto research design was used. For the purpose of this study, four villages from the Dharmapuri and Pappireddipatti blocks in the Dharmapuri district were chosen namely Kombur, Ajjampatty, Sitheri, and Vathalmalai. A simple random sampling technique was used to select 100 respondents from these villages for the sample size. To obtain comprehensive meaning of interpretations, a statistical test was run on the acquired data. More than half of the respondents to this study accepted the TNAU-released cultivars of Sorghum (K12), ragi (CO 15), and Samai (CO), Kudiraivali (CO2), Panivaragu (CO 5), and Varagu (CO3). The majority of responders (87.00%) increased change in bore or deepen existing wells, provided higher education to children, increased their interaction with extension agencies (54.00%), and expanded organizational participation (38.00%). The majority of respondents didn't use the recommended seed treatments, NPK fertilizers, or nutrient applications. In order to increase awareness and understanding, the state department of agriculture and KVK should implement the appropriate measures, such as conducting regular field visits, demonstrations, and trainings.
