Abstract:
The present study was carried out in Ambala and Kurukshetra districts of Haryana during 2020-21 to find out the knowledge level of farmers about Direct Seeded Rice (DSR) cultivation technology in eight villages of these districts for enhanced resource use efficiency and reducing the cost of paddy cultivation. 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 two-third of the respondents (40.00%) had low level of knowledge about DSR technology followed by medium and high. Indeed, more awareness programmes should be organized by the government and non-governmental organizations to increase level of knowledge about DSR technology to sustain rice production in Haryana. Study also revealed that variables like education, land holding, availability of farm equipments, mass media exposure, extension contact, economic motivation, risk orientation and innovativeness exhibited positive and significant correlation at 0.05 level of probability with their knowledge level about DSR technology.
