Abstract

Effectiveness is one of the key parameters to assess success of any programs. However, the effectiveness of training programme on mushroom cultivation was not well addressed. The purposes of this study were to investigate the effectiveness of training programme on mushroom cultivation and to explore the relationships of each of the selected characteristics of the trained mushroom farmers with their effectiveness of training programme. Data were collected from the trained mushroom farmers of selected eight villages of three upazilas of Comilla district of Bangladesh during 01 to 16 March, 2016. The sample size of the study was 103 trained mushroom farmers and drawn from a population of 801 using proportionate random sampling technique. It was revealed that training programme on mushroom cultivation was found medium effective among highest proportion (39.8%) of the trained mushroom farmers, while among 32% and 28.2% of them found low and high effective respectively. Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient (r) was computed to explore the relationships between the effectiveness of mushroom training programme and selected characteristics of the trained farmers. The correlation analysis indicated that age, cosmopoliteness and extension media contact of the trained mushroom farmers had significant positive relationships with their effectiveness of training programme on mushroom cultivation. Fatalism and problems faced of the trained farmers had significant negative relationships with their effectiveness of training programme on mushroom cultivation. Education, family size, annual family income, peer group influence, organizational participation, innovativeness had no significant relationships with their effectiveness of training programme on mushroom cultivation. It was found that training programme on mushroom cultivation was effective to the trained farmers from medium to very high level. So, proper follow up actions need to be continued for the sustainability of mushroom production by the trained farmers.
