Farm mechanization implies the use of various power sources, improved farm tools and equipment, with a view to reduce the drudgery of the human beings and draught animals, which increasing the crop production and productivity. About 65 per cent of the Indian population depends on agriculture for their livelihood. In recent years, non availability of farm labours and fragmentation of land holdings (smaller land holdings) are forcing many farmers to mechanize their farms and over the last few years, there has been considerable progress in agriculture mechanization. Mechanization in agriculture is predominantly taking place mainly for operations where traditional practices have failed to achieve the precision in operations. Keeping this in view a study was conducted to know the awareness of farm mechanization on paddy grower in Uttarkannada, Karnataka A survey was conducted by interview method from paddy growers to elicit information regarding awareness level of farm mechanization. It was revealed that majority of the respondents (90.00%) were fully aware about the farm implements and machinery.

Key words:   Awareness, Implements, Mechanization, Paddy and Profile
