For the present investigation data were collected from all the seven districts of the South Gujarat region, the overall sample size comprises of 280 young farmers. The results showed that the majority of the young farmers had adequate to best knowledge about CSA interventions. Further, results showed that the annual income, risk preference and leadership ability were found positively and significantly related to the knowledge of young farmers about CSA interventions at a 1 percent level of significance. While, education, mass media exposure, extension contact, scientific orientation, awareness on climate change, innovativeness, risk orientation and decision making ability were found positively and significantly related with the knowledge of young farmers about CSA interventions at a 5 percent level of significance. Furthermore, the land holding was found negatively and non-significantly related with the knowledge of young farmers about CSA interventions.
