This study aimed to investigate the effects of the training offered by Krishi Vigyan Kendra in Kishanganj on various climate-resilient technologies. A total240 respondents were selected using purposive sampling out of which 120 respondents were trainee farmers and 120 were non trainee respondents farmers. The primary data was collected through a semi-structured interview schedule using face to face data collection method. The result of the study revealed that the trainee farmers were found higher in respect of knowledge and adoption level than the non-trainee respondents on improver climate resilient technologies. The socio-economic characteristics of trainees were found to be positively and significantly correlated with the knowledge and adoption level of the trainee respondents. This indicates that training provided by Krishi Vigyan Kendra on different climate-resilient practices benefited the farmers and boosted their productivity and lead them to adopt climate-resilient technologies. Almost half (49.4%) of the respondents showed a high level of knowledge, while 33.3% had a medium level of knowledge. The remaining 17.5% of respondents fell into the low knowledge category when it came to CRA interventions during their trainee period. It is recommended that KVK organize additional training programs on climate-resilient practices for non-trainee farmers in the villages. This will help ensure that all farmers have access to improved knowledge and can adopt these practices for better results.
