Abstract: The continued changing pattern of climate give rise the necessity of adopting improved farming practices as farming sector is more susceptible to this change. Climate change introduces uncertainties in the livelihoods of communities having higher dependence on weather and climate. It is becoming a threat towards world community through increasing temperatures, reduced precipitation, frequent droughts and scarcity of water. The basic elements of food production such as soil, water and biodiversity are negatively affected by climate change. Scheduled Caste farmers have therefore been modifying their farming practices to better adapt to the changing climate. But the traditional coping mechanisms are not sufficient for dealing with medium to long-term impacts of climate change. So, innovation of modern technologies is essential to mitigate the climate change adaptation. It is also important to understand how and when these technologies are used by Scheduled Caste farmers and with what impacts. An understanding of the factors that influence the adoption of an innovation is therefore important in the process of technology development and dissemination. As a low lying downstream riparian District, Krishna District is one of the most climate vulnerable District in the state. The Krishna District part is adversely affected by climate variable particularly drought. Improved farm practices in Krishna District are therefore needed to become more available to improve the livelihoods of Scheduled Caste farmers. Several technologies and practices are available for smallholder Scheduled Caste farmers in Krishna District to enable them better adapt to the effects of climate change.
