Abstract:
Production of a new technology is generally not the major problem now-a-day in our country. The agricultural scientists are capable of producing appropriate technology. The main problem as it exists today is that of diffusion and adoption of new farm technologies among the farmers. Diffusion of knowledge is relatively an easy task. Getting people to understand, accept and apply is the difficult one. The present study was purposively undertaken in the three talukas viz., Patan, Saraswati and Harij talukas of Patan district of Gujarat state. The ex-post facto research design and multistage sampling technique were followed for present study. Five villages were randomly selected from each taluka having castor cultivation. Thus, total fifteen villages were selected. From each selected village, ten farmers were selected randomly by making a sample of 150 respondents. The study revealed that major constraints faced by the castor growers in the adoption of recommended castor production technology were; unavailability of certified seed at local level, shortage and high wages of labour, high cost of fertilizers and inadequate finance. The most important suggestions expressed by castor growers to overcome the constraints faced by them in maximum adoption of recommended castor production technology were; reasonable price should be given to agricultural produce, certified seed should be made locally and price of agricultural inputs should be minimized.
