Modernization of agriculture is not only conglomeration of knowledge, attitude and adoption of improved technologies for higher productivity, income and food security but also includes environmental and higher income security (i.e., doubling farmers’ income by 2022). So, scientific cultivation of medicinal and aromatic crops with scramble of environment and higher income security is not an exception. This paper is an attempt to examine the existing socio-economic and modernization status of MAP growers in the Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh, India; it will pave the way to accelerate the further modernization. Various socio-economic variables were included to examine the socio-economic status of MAP growers.

Modernization index was calculated and respondents were categorized. Study showed that variables, namely, ‘age’, ‘experience in mentha cultivation’, ‘education’, ‘land under mint cultivation’, ‘type of house’, were positively and significantly correlated for characterizing the modernization of mint cultivation.
