The present study was focused on technology transfer to farmers by Krishi Vigyan Kendra Ferozepur and their impact on self employment and up gradation of their livelihoods. Krishi Vigyan Kendra Ferozepur had conducted vocational/short term trainings for rural youth/farmers and extension functionaries on cultivation of button and dhingri mushroom, bee keeping, dairy farming, preservation of fruits and vegetable, protected vegetable cultivation. A total of 167 trainees were selected as the respondents of the trainings. The findings revealed that more than 41.31% respondents were belonging to 30-40 years age group and about 67.66 per cent respondents were educated. Half of the respondents were belong to schedule caste families and landless. About 27.1 per cent of the trainees had training on bee keeping, 24.9 per cent on dairy farming, and 23.3 per cent on cultivation of button and dhingri mushroom, 15.0 per cent of the trainees received training on preservation of fruits and vegetable. Majority of the trainees had adopted the skills on self sustainable level/household level with highest adoption in cultivation of button and dhingri mushroom (69.0%), 58% in bee keeping followed by 36.0 % in dairy farming, 20% in fruits and vegetable preservation. The number of adoption of protected vegetable cultivation was lowest but found highest adoption at commercial level. Economic impact of trainings at self sustainable level/household level is quite visible in terms of income generation as trainees had started and adopted skills as subsidiary or main occupation.
