The study was carried out in steps, viz., Repository preparation and evaluation of the content for the App, Development of “Android dairy App” and effectiveness of the App in terms of knowledge gain and adoption of management practices. Within one month the effectiveness of dairy app in terms of knowledge gain and adoption was studied and was found to be satisfactory. Highest knowledge gain was found in feeding management (59.7%) followed by, knowledge gain regarding general care & management (56.5%), housing management (51.05%), breeding management (47.36%) and disease management (44.52%). Within a short period of 25-35 days of exposure towards the APP, 16.88 per cent had adopted scientific breeding practices, followed by increased adoption level in disease management (19.38%) and general care and management (19.38%). This mobile app is an important tool in diffusing the scientific developments in the field of dairy production and management and also acts as a ready reckoner to refer through the information at any time.
