Abstract:
Rice-based cropping system can be described as mix of farming practices that comprises of rice as the major crop followed by subsequent cultivation of other crops. Intercropping of rice and other compatible crops is also widely practiced in many regions. The study was conducted during the year 2017-19 in two irrigated districts namely Janjgir-Champa and Dhamtari and two rainfed districts namely Korba and Mahasamund in Chhattisgarh Plains. Form the each of the selected districts two representative blocks namely Kurud and Dhamtari from Dhamtari district and Janjgir and Champa form Janjgir-Champa district were selected purposively. Similarly, two blocks Pali and Katghora from Korba district and Mahasamund and Bagbhra from Mahasamund district were selected. From each selected block two representative villages were selected randomly. Therefore 8 irrigated and 8 rainfed villages were considered for the study. Total 16 villages were selected. From each selected village 20 representative farmers were selected randomly. In this way a total of 160 (20X8) farmers from irrigated and 160 (20X8) farmers from rainfed area were selected. Thus total 320 farmers were considered as respondents for the present study. As regards to correlation analysis of non-irrigated respondents, revealed that out of the fourteen variables under the study only, four variables namely credit availability, economic motivation, attitude towards insect-pest management practices in major crops and knowledge about insect-pest management practices in major crops had highly significant and positive relationship with adoption of insect-pest management practices of respondents at 0.01 percent level of significance. Regarding multiple regression analysis, the data revealed that out of the fourteen variables, only three variables namely economic motivation, attitude towards insect-pest management practices in major crops and knowledge about insect-pest management practices in major crops had highly significant and positive contribution towards adoption of Insect-pest management practices at 0.01 percent level of significance.
