Abstract:
The present study on adoption of minor millets (Kodo-kutki) production technology among the tribal farmers in Dindori district Madhya Pradesh was conducted during the year 2021-22 with the aim of understanding how tribal farmers of Dindori district (MP) are adopting minor millet (Kodo-kutki) production techniques. The research was focused on seven blocks within Dindori district namely Dindori, Shahpura, Bajag, Shamnapur, Amarpur, Karanjiya and Mehandwani. Among these, the Bajag block was intentionally selected due to its larger area and higher number of farmers engaged in minor millet cultivation. To gather primary data, a total of 120 respondents were selected using a proportionate random sampling method from five different villages i.e., Khapripani, Shitalpani, Shivri, Sunpuri and Khamhera. A well planned interview schedule was used and the investigator individually interviewed selected respondents to collect reliable data. The data analysis tools employed in this study included frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation and correlation coefficient. The results revealed that 75.00% of respondents had fully adopted soil and land preparation, 63.33% of farmers had adopted seed and sowing management, 60.00% of them had adopted the practice of manure and fertilizer management, 58.33% of the respondents had adopted improved minor millet varieties. Additionally, 35.83 percent, 54.16% and 68.33% of respondents had adopted weed management, plant protection practices and harvesting management, respectively. Only 30.00% of respondents had adopted storage management practices for Kodo-kutki cultivation. The study also highlighted that a relatively low level of adoption of Kodo-kutki production technology was observed in 60.83% of respondents and a poor level of knowledge regarding these techniques was found in 71.66% of respondents.
