Literature review shows that articles focusing on information sources used by farmers growing pulses are limited. Although farmers lack technical knowledge related to cultivation of pulses, they do not benefit from extension staff at enough level. Therefore, they face difficulties while growing pulses. The aim of this study is to determine information sources (printed & unprinted material, universities, extension staff, media, private input sellers, chamber of agriculture, neighbour farms, etc) used by farmers growing pulses in Tokat province of Turkey. Data were collected from 142 farms via survey. Research findings showed that farmers growing pulses contact with agents selling seed for green bean, private agrochemical sellers and other farmers in the region. On the other hand, they get information at weal level from research institute, agricultural faculty, agro-based industry, printed material, and media.
