Abstract:
Polyhouse vegetable cultivation has gained significant importance in modern agriculture, offering controlled environment conditions that enhance crop productivity and reduce the impact of external factors. The increasing global population poses a significant challenge to food security and necessitates the exploration of innovative agricultural practices. Among these practices, polyhouse cultivation has gained prominence due to its potential to optimize crop growth and yield in controlled environments. Therefore, the research aimed to assess the change in yield, change in productivity and additional income generation through vegetable cultivation practices in polyhouses. The study was carried out in two districts of Rajasthan namely Bhilwara and Chittorgarh. Data was collected through surveys and interviews conducted with farmers in the region. The resultant changes in yield, productivity and income of respondents were calculated by the consequences after the adoption of polyhouse technologies. The change was calculated by the difference between before and after the adoption of various polyhouse technologies. To categorize the changes in yield, productivity and income was further calculated by the mean and standard deviation score. The study clearly shows that better vegetable yield obtained by majority (69.00 %) respondents. Whereas, 23.00 per cent of respondents obtained high yield and rest 8.00 per cent respondents obtained least improvement in vegetable crops. It’s also shows that that majority (76.00 %) of respondents were found to have medium level change in their productivity whereas, 15.00 per cent respondents found to have high level change in their productivity and remaining 9.00 per cent respondents found to have low level change in their productivity, respectively. The study also shows that majority (69.00 %) of respondents obtained better income whereas, 18.00 per cent respondents obtained high income and remaining 13.00 per cent respondents relatively obtained less improvement in their income.
