V, Lenin and Singh, Baldeo and Vijayaragavan, K (2009) Decision Making by the Farmers in Agricultural Technology Management Agency. Pusa AgriScience, 32 . pp. 79-82.
In the present study decision making by the farmers in Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA) was assessed. Among the ATMA staff of Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra state and Dahod district of Gujarat state, 30 staff were randomly selected from each district. In total, 60 ATMA staff formed the sample. Their perception about the farmers’ decision making in ATMA was quantified. The data were collected through a structured interview schedule. Personal interview was conducted at their offices. Majority (32 %) of the ATMA staff expressed that the farmers had very low level of decision making at various levels of implementation of ATMA. ATMA staff expressed that the farmer was not a member of the committee which prepared SREP / BAP, farmers did not monitor the progress of the activities in the field, farmers did not have the power to reject any activity, and farmers did not evaluate the performance of an activity.
