Abstract:
The present study was undertaken in the South Konkan coastal zone, which comprises two districts: Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg. The research adopted the ex-post facto method of social science. A simple random sampling method was used to select a total of 156 respondents. The data were gathered using a structured interview and analyzed using appropriate statistical techniques. It was discovered that the majority of mango growers were older and had completed secondary school. They earned a moderate annual income and had a small landholding, which included the marginal area under the mango. A sizable majority had self-ownership of mango orchards and possessed 'adequate' resources for mango orchard management. They cultivated mango orchards on rocky soil with a hilly topography. The respondents in the sample had a high level of knowledge. The study recommends that policymakers, academics, extension personnel, and development agencies focus to increase the adoption of climate-resilient technologies. According to mango farmers, skilled workers are required for mango tree canopy management and rejuvenation. Rural youths' capacity in this area may be strengthened by the Agricultural University and KVKs within the jurisdiction.
