The present study was undertaken to know the information needs of the tribal piggery farmers of Aizawl district of Mizoram, covering two developmental blocks, 10 villages and a total of 100 respondents. Data were collected through personal interview. The results obtained from the study indicated that respondents ranked diseases and its symptoms as the most important information needs. The correlation analysis showed that three socio-economic variables, namely, operational land holding, adoption level of the farmers and number of training, were found to have a positive and significant association with information needs while the farming experience was significantly and negatively correlated with information needs of the pig farmers. Multiple regression analysis showed that two independent variables, farming experience and operational land holding, were found to be significant at 0.01 level of probability while attitude towards information was found to be significant at 0.05 level of probability. Multiple regression analysis yielded a co-efficient of multiple regression (R) of 0.612 and multiple regression square (R2) of 0.375.
