There has been growing interest regarding human perception and value system toward climate change. Adaptation to climate change involves changes in agricultural management practices in response to changing climatic condition. Considering the importance of these practices for minimizing the adverse effect of climatic change the present investigation was conducted in Rewa district of M.P. during 2014-15. The sample was consisted of 120 farmers of adopted villages of KVK Rewa (M.P.). The investigation revealed that the major effect of climate change as viewed by the farmers were as rise in temperature, long dry spell, prevalence of pests and diseases, early withdrawal of monsoon, decrease in rainfall and incidence of frost and hailstorm. The study suggests that awareness and training programmes for the farmers should be conducted frequently so as to enhance the adaptation rate of the practices namely integrated pest and disease management, integrated nutrient management and integrated weed management.
