Abstract:
The present study was carried out in Sirsa and Hisar districts of Haryana to find out the adoption level of wheat seed production technologies. In total 120 respondents, viz. 60 wheat seed producing farmers from each district and 30 farmers from each block were selected for the study. Empirical data were collected personally through a well-structured and pre-tested interview schedule and analyzed with the help of appropriate statistical tools using 26th version of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Findings revealed that more than half of the respondents (56.67%) had medium level of overall adoption level regarding wheat seed production technology. In case of practise-wise adoption, the adoption level was high about field preparation, recommended varieties, seed standards and field standards, while spacing and sowing time were less adopted practices. Study also concluded that independent variables like age, education, socio-economic status, land holding, extension contact, mass media exposure, change proneness, risk orientation, scientific orientation and seed production experience were positively and significantly correlated with adoption level.
