P. Sanjeevi, Dr. K. Mahandrakumar

A drought is an extended period where water availability falls below the statistical requirements for a region. Monsoon failure is experienced in many parts of the country almost every year. The study was conducted in Namakkal district of Tamil Nadu state, with the objective to identify and document the technological mitigation strategies that are currently adopted by farmers in the study area to overcome the adverse effects of drought. Simple random sampling method was used in selection of 100 farmers each 50 belongs to annual and seasonal crops respectively. Considering various technological mitigation practices the awareness, acceptance and adoption level of farmers were collected and the data were analyzed using percentage analysis. The findings revealed that more than 75.00 per cent of the respondents were aware of most of the technological mitigation strategies. When it comes to the acceptance level of technological mitigation strategies, a gap between awareness and acceptance was found. Nearly 50.00-60.00 per cent respondents who were aware of the technologies like drip / sprinkler method of irrigation, mulching and selection of drought tolerant varieties and application of anti-transpirant chemicals sprays but not adopted them. The technological mitigation strategies promoted by the extension agents were adopted by half of the realized farmers. As most of them are beneficiaries of these programmes.
