The study on adoption of poultry management practices by backyard poultry farmers was conducted during 2021-2022 in Northern Karnataka. Sixty backyard poultry farmers were randomly selected from each district to constitute a sample size of 120. The study reported that, half (50.00%) of the backyard poultry farmers were belonged to medium adoption, followed by low (33.33%) and high adoption (25.00%).

The variables like education, extension contact, social participation, mass media exposure, economic motivation, scientific orientation and risk orientation had positive significant association with adoption of poultry management practices at one per cent level of significance.
