Abstract:
According to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO, 2008), organic agriculture promotes ecological resilience, improved biodiversity, healthy management, off-farms and the surrounding environment, and building on community knowledge and strength. Association between type of family and level of knowledge was found highly significant. More than sixty percent of the respondents who belonged to nuclear family had low level of knowledge about organic vegetable crops. On the other hand 44.4 percent of the respondents who belonged to joint family had high level of knowledge regarding organic vegetable crops. The association between annual family income and level of knowledge was found highly significant. The data revealed that the respondents who had annual income from organic vegetable crops i.e. up to Rs.50,000 had low level of knowledge and the respondents who had annual income above Rs.1,00000 had high level of knowledge. Highly significant association was found between annual income from organic vegetable crops and level of knowledge. Association between social participation and level of adoption was found highly significant. It was found that 56.5 percent of the respondents who had low social participation had high level of adoption followed by 50.0 percent of the respondent who had nil level of social participation had medium level of adoption of organic crops. Highly significant association was found between mass media exposure and level of adoption. It was observed that 47.4 percent of the respondents who belonged to low mass media exposure had low level of adoption and 72.7 percent of the respondents who had high level of mass media exposure had high level adoption of organic crops.
