Abstract:
The present study was carried out in Hisar and Sirsa districts of Haryana to find out the knowledge level of farmers about wheat seed production technology. In total 120 respondents, viz. 60 wheat seed producing farmers from each district and 30 farmers from each block were selected for the study. The data were collected with the help of well-structured and pre-tested interview schedule and analyzed using 26th version of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) for tabulating results and drawing conclusions. Findings of the study revealed that most of the farmers (61.67%) had medium level of overall knowledge level about seed production technology of wheat followed by high and low. Indeed, more awareness programmes should be organized by the government and non-governmental organizations to increase level of knowledge about wheat seed production technology to sustain wheat production in Haryana. Study also revealed that variables like age, education, socio-economic status, extension contact, mass media exposure, change proneness, risk orientation, scientific orientation and seed production experience were positively and significantly correlated with their knowledge level about wheat seed production technology.
