Abstract:
Despite increasing crop yields, the so-called green revolution (GR) has failed to ensure agricultural sustainability in the long run. They have also resulted in soil degradation and a plethora of other environmental and health issues, resulting in the emergence of Biocontrol products, which are environmentally helpful because they are created from naturally existing microbes, plants, and insects. This study investigates the awareness level, satisfaction level of bio control product among Western zone of Tamil Nadu farmers and it also studied the constraints faced by the farmers in adopting the bio control products. In this study, 120 samples were taken from the farmers of Western zone in Tamil Nadu. Garrett ranking and percentage analyses were the tools used for analysis. According to the survey, 47.5 percent of farmers were very knowledgeable about biocontrol products, and 63.33 percent were highly satisfied with their application. The study also found that non-availability of bio control products in local was the major constraint faced by farmers in adopting the bio control product. The study also suggested the ways to overcome the constraints faced by farmers such as increasing bio-retail input stores, creating awareness through advertisements, training programs through extension agencies.
