The present study was conducted in Gonda district of Uttar Pradesh. The purpose of the study was to assess the technological empowerment of farm women in terms of gain in skill in selected drudgery reduction technologies related to agriculture. The 100 farm women were covered for technological empowerment through training from two purposively selected Panchayat Samities. Personal interview technique was used for collecting data. The findings of the study reveal that the initially very few respondents (4%) could handle the rake correctly before exposure of training. The post training data indicated tremendous gain in skill as majority of the respondents were able to use all the selected animal husbandry technologies as shown by MPS ranging between 84.6-91.0. Intervention further improved skill as most of the respondents gained skill in correctly handling the technologies as indicated by MPS of 94.3-97.0.
