Abstract: Attitude is defined as the degree of favourable or unfavourable feeling of the farmers towards zero budget natural farming. It is the accepted fact that an attitude of an individual plays an important role in determining ones behaviour. Keeping this in view a standardized scale has been developed to measure the attitude of farmers towards zero budget natural farming (ZBNF). A summated (likert) rating scale was been developed. The process started with identifying the dimension, collection of items followed by relevancy and item analysis and checking the reliability and validity for precision and consistency of the results. A total of thirty three (33) statements were framed in which finally twelve (12) statements were finally retained for measuring attitude of farmers towards zero budget natural farming. The scale contains total twelve statements, out of which eight statements are positive and four statements are negative. The scale developed was found highly reliable and valid.
