Abstract: 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.

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.
