|Abstract: ||Model training courses are important training programmes sponsored by the Directorate of Extension, Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of India. These training programmes are organized on priority areas of agriculture, horticulture and allied aspects and conducted by premier institutes involved in technology generation. In a participatory rural appraisal (PRA) study conducted at Indian Institute of horticultural Research (IIHR), Bangalore, it was found that 72% of field problems faced by the farmers are related to pest and disease identification and their management. Keeping this in view, it was decided to organize a model training course for agri/horticultural extension officials on “IPM in horticultural crops”. The evaluation was aimed at knowing the perception of the 21 participants on the different aspects of the training programme. Model training courses had significant impact on enhancing the knowledge level and skill development among trainees in respect of IPM in horticultural crops. The participation in MTC facilitates better job performance by the officials, more so in implementation of national horticulture mission (NHM). The trainees expressed that the topics of pest and disease management is very useful and all extension workers are directly linked to farming community. The presentation of the lectures through power point with good photographs and corresponding explanation in institute and farmers field was very useful and refreshing learning experience, which is very useful in their back job situation. Further the impact of MTC’s on actual adoption of technologies learnt and transferred by the trainees can be assessed for better refinement of the technologies as required in field.|
