Abstract:
India with varied climatic and soil is natural home of spices. Spices may be defined as one of the very strongly flavored or aromatic substances of vegetable origin obtained from tropical or other plants. Among all the minor spices grown, fennel (Foeniculum vulgare P. Miller) locally known as "Variyali" is one of the important spices crop. The share of Banaskantha district in spice production is 12.24 per cent and in fennel production is 8.38 per cent in Gujarat. Thus, Banaskantha district was selected purposively. Two tribal dominating talukas viz; Amirgadh and Danta were selected purposively. Ten villages were selected randomly from each taluka having area covered under fennel cultivation. Thus, total twenty villages were selected. From each selected village, six respondents were selected randomly making a sample of 120 respondents. Ex-post facto research design was followed for carrying out the study. The major constraints faced by the tribal fennel growers in adoption of recommended fennel production technology were; unavailability of certified seed (77.50%), inadequate finance (74.16%), non-remunerative price of production (65.00%), high production cost (63.33) and high cost of fertilizer (61.00%).
