Abstract:
The current study was conducted in the South Konkan coastal zone, which is divided into two districts: Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg. A ex post facto method was used in this study. A simple random sampling technique was employed to get the sample size of 156 respondents. Data were collected through a structured interview and analyzed using appropriate statistical techniques. It was revealed that the respondent's age was negatively associated with their knowledge. However, annual income, operational landholding, area under mango, ownership of mango orchards, access to crop loan, resource availability, input source, extension participation, distance of orchards from seashore, planting density, and adoption were found to be positively and significantly correlated with knowledge. Further, education, soil type, orchard age, crop insurance coverage, climate vulnerability was non-significantly associated with knowledge. The respondent's age was negatively associated with their adoption. Annual income, operational landholding, area under mango, ownership of mango orchards, access to crop loan, input source, knowledge, and extension participation were found to be positively and significantly correlated with adoption. Soil type, orchard age, crop insurance coverage, planting density, education, climatic vulnerability, resource availability, orchard distance from the seaside, and topography were not shown any relationship with the adoption of climate resilient technology.
