Abstract:
The study was conducted in Ambala and Kurukshetra districts of Haryana during 2020 and 2021, to determine the adoption status of zero tillage technology. One hundred sixty farmers from eight villages of these districts were chosen randomly. Empirical data was obtained using a well-structured and pre-tested interview schedule and analysed using appropriate statistical procedures utilising the Statistical Package for Social Sciences 26th version (SPSS). According to the findings, more than one-third of the respondents (36.87%) belonged to medium level of adoption closely followed by low level (35.00%) adoption of ZT technology, Further analysed that the majority of them (71.87%) adopted ZT at low to medium degree. Personal attributes like education, land holding, farm equipment availability, mass media exposure, extension contact, economic motivation, risk orientation, and innovativeness all showed a positive and significant association with adoption level of ZT technology at the 0.05 level of probability. While education, land holding, farm power mass media exposure, extension contact and training received on RCT, were significantly contributed towards adoption of zero tillagetechnology.
