Maize, a staple food for the majority of India's population and a critical cereal crop in both Kharif and Rabi seasons, relies heavily on technology as the primary driver of change. To prevent technology fatigue and address technology gaps, it is imperative to rejuvenate research, education, and extension systems. This study aimed to identify technological gaps in various maize cultivation practices adopted by farmers. The research was conducted in the Nagri block of Chhattisgarh's Dhamtari district, which is comprised of four development blocks: Dhamtari, Kurud, Nagri, and Magarlod. The findings revealed that 50.00 percent of respondents had a medium level of technological gap, while 26.67 percent exhibited a low gap, and 23.33 percent experienced a high technological gap in recommended maize production practices.
