Abstract: Due to technological advancement in vegetable cultivation, there is a strong need to train the growers to keep them abreast about improved technologies for improving their productivity and increasing income. Thus, for organizing effective training programme, the present study was planned with objective to identify the training needs of vegetable farmers. The present study was conducted in Jaipur district of Rajasthan which was selected purposively. The Jaipur district consists of 13 panchayat samities, Out of which two panchayat samities namely Bassi and Amber were selected by purposively on the basis of the highest area and production. Amber and Govindgarh panchayat samities comprise 48 and 45-gram panchayats, respectively. Among these, 3-gram panchayats from Amber panchayat samiti and 3-gram panchayats from Govindgarh panchayat samiti were selected randomly. In all 12 villages were selected from the selected gram panchayats by using simple random sampling technique and a sample of 84 cauliflower growers was selected from these villages by using proportionate random sampling technique. It was observed that the cauliflower growers required more training in some of crucial training areas viz; “knowledge about method of application of phosphatic fertilizers”, “appropriate time of harvesting”. The cauliflower growers perceived the least training needs areas like “knowledge about use of trace /minor elements or bio-fertilizers” and “knowledge about depth of sowing” of improved cauliflower production technology.
