The Krishi Vigyan Kendra (Farm Science Centre), Nashik, Maharashtra organizes trainings regarding Green House Cultivation Technology for aspiring entrepreneurs willing to venture into this area. This study was undertaken to measure the impact of a training programme on knowledge of the farmers. Findings concluded that most of the respondents had shifted from low knowledge level category to middle and higher knowledge level categories after the training. There was not a single respondent in high knowledge level category before the test. There was a highly significant and positive relationship of knowledge gained by respondents with education, media exposure and risk orientation.
