Abstract:
Wheat is the main staple food for the people of India. In many developing countries like India where there are limited agricultural resources such as small land holdings, limited agricultural facilities and a large population to feed farmers face many constraints in adoption of improved crop cultivation practices. The present study was conducted in randomly selected Sarvankhera block of District Kanpur Dehat, five villages Duari, Gangrauli, Bharatpur Piyasi, Rasulpur Gogumau and Shyampur were randomly selected and a sample of 120 wheat grower farmers from selected block were selected by random sampling technique. The majority of farmers covered were of middle age groups, having middle school standard qualification, medium family size (6-9 members) and medium experience of farming (16-25 years). The data was collected from each respondent through pre-tested structured interview schedule and suitable statistical procedures were used to analyze the data. Constraints were categorized into six categories, namely, administrative constraints, input constraints, technical constraints and other miscellaneous constraints. The study concluded that less visit of staff during crop season (98.33%), high cost of HYVs seeds, fertilizers and chemicals (97.5%), lack of information related to improved practices (88.33%), low risk bearing capacity of farmers (99.16%) and weather condition and rainfall affecting the yield (96.66%) were experienced to be main constraints which affect the adoption of improved wheat production technologies by the respondent farmers of the study area.
