Five districts of Saurashtra region were selected for the study. Two talukas from each selected districts were selected purposively where cluster frontline demonstrations are conducted by the KVKs during last two years. Thus, total 10 talukas were selected for the study. Villages from each taluka were selected purposively where maximum cluster frontline demonstrations are conducted by KVKs. Thus, total 16 villages were selected purposively. The random sampling technique was used for the selection of the respondents. 80 demonstrator and 80 non-demonstrator farmers were selected randomly from selected village for comparative study. Thus total 160 respondents were selected for this study. The data were classified, tabulated and analyzed with the help of frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation and Z value.
